According to a recent report by the United Nations, more than 7-million people in South Africa are living with HIV.
A lot of South Africans are not only living with HIV but they are also thriving.
Eusebius McKaiser chats to brothers Thula and Ntokozo Mkhize, who run a campaign called Good Stories SA on how to get over the stigma and thrive while living with HIV.
Over the years we have transcended from HIV being this death thing to people now accepting it and viewing it in a more positive light.— Thula Mkhiza, HIV Good Stories
South Africa is going in the right direction even though there are still pockets of people that see the disease with stigma, he explains.
What we find with the work that we do is either finding someone who already is living with HIV and they are forced to change their mindset. Or we will deal with someone who is affected and is at a place where they need to make a change and support someone better.— Ntokozo Mkhize, HIV Good Stories
