My Life with HIV

Punctuation

Punctuation is a story of a family’s journey to come to terms with the new challenges faced by people living with HIV. The content of the film is based on the experiences and insights of a group of European clinicians and people living with HIV. Punctuation is not just one person's story; it brings to life new considerations for people living with HIV as they manage their long-term health.

The behind the scenes footage has been developed to support understanding of the topics raised in the film.

Beyond Undetectable; it’s not a full stop, it’s a comma

People with HIV are living longer than ever before, but reaching undetectable viral load is not the end of the story. People with HIV now face new risks, including an increased risk of heart disease, cancer, kidney disease and psychological difficulties. Looking Beyond Undetectable means dealing with these risks, to help all people with HIV – from the newly diagnosed to those living with HIV for years – stay healthier for longer.
