This year, we will collect stories to be featured on this website and other social media channels.
We invite women and girls living with HIV/AIDS, those who have been touched by HIV/AIDS, and health care providers to share your experience with HIV/AIDS and your views on the importance of care and treatment. Email your personal story or video (no longer than three minutes) to email@example.com. We welcome stories in English and Spanish. Use the subject line: NWGHAAD Voices. If you choose to send a video, just provide a link to your YouTube video. If needed, OWH will contact you for additional information.
