Despite the progress that has been made in the medical treatment of HIV/AIDS, people living with this virus still carry with them the additional burden of the stigma and discrimination this disease brings with it. Open Door Clinic has begun to address these issues by undertaking the challenge of collecting and making accessible the personal stories of HIV+ people through The Legacy Campaign. The stories compiled in this book demonstrate the diversity of lives impacted by HIV/AIDS. They offer a powerful glimpse into the personal struggles of these courageous individuals who hope that their stories can contribute to limiting new infections while correcting and eliminating unwarranted fears, stigmas, and discriminatory practices where they live and work.
Abraham Rose together with Open Door Clinic compiled The Legacy Campaign. Abraham is founder and president of His Rose, Inc., which published this work. She is also one of the forty-five authors, having lived with this virus for more than 16 years. Open Door Clinic provides sexual health & wellness services that empower individuals and eliminate the transmission of sexually transmitted infections including HIV/AIDS and the stigmas attached.
