I was diagnosed as HIV positive eight years ago, and possibly infected two or three years earlier. Though I had no idea of my infection, my passion for HIV work was never based on the fact that I might have been infected.
When I started HIV care, support and prevention work in the 90s, I had not slightest idea I was ever going to get infected. However, I was in fear.
A few months before I started working for Nigeria’s foremost HIV charity that provides services for MSM, I had gone to see my friend in the hospital.
