HIV IN BOLIVIA
Daniel Ruiz Diaz has recently celebrated an unusual anniversary. On the 18th of November, he marked 20 years since being diagnosed with HIV. His was one of the very first HIV cases in Bolivia, and he's survived longer than anyone else there. Daniel puts it down to living healthily and taking his medication. Originally from Argentina, he works as an AIDS activist in Cochabamba Boliviam, where our reporter Mattia Cabitza has been to meet him.
