The stigma of HIV - four places, four people

From India to Kenya, and Tajikistan to Bolivia - the daily difficulties that face people with HIV are often the same no matter what country they live in, and no matter how many thousands of miles they are apart.

In Stigma Under the Lens - marking World Aids Day on 1 December - the charity Christian Aid has worked with Magnum Photos, an international co-operative of photographers, to document personal perspectives of the disease. Here, take a glimpse at the lives of four HIV positive people.
