The Recipe for Positive Living

Positive living means having a positive outlook to living and life. It also means living responsibly with HIV and preventing new infections.

  • People living with HIV can live full and healthy lives if they take care of themselves, access care and treatment, and feel supported to make healthy choices.
  • Families can also live positively with HIV by supporting and taking care of each other.
  • Positive living includes:
    • Keeping the mind healthy
    • Keeping the body healthy
    • Keeping the soul healthy
    • Preventing new HIV infections
    • Keeping the whole family healthy

KNOWLEDGE + DETERMINATION TO LIVE with actions for a HEALTHY MIND + HEALTHY BODY + HEALTHY SOUL

= A LONG, HEALTHY LIFE
