This Photo Voice booklet is a compilation of stories from HIV positive young women and girls living in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. By reading the stories and taking in the images they have snapped we are each challenged in how we can contribute to making a difference in the lives of those most urgently in need of our support.

These visual stories show in different ways that with the right support and antiretroviral treatment (ART), adolescent girls living with HIV can not only live but thrive with HIV and contribute to community life. They need not die from AIDS. Like these girls, in each of our communities there are young women and girls who need our support. If you are a young girl reading these stories and looking at the photos know that you are not alone. If you are a keystakeholder in the response to HIV, we urge you to Reach out, Listen and Act.
