In honor of World AIDS Day, the Merck Manuals will feature positive moments from individuals living with HIV.
#MyPositiveMoment stories will highlight the inspiring moment when HIV positive individuals realized that they could live a happy and healthy life. As a result, we hope to tackle the stigma around the condition by showing that with the right information, education, and support, individuals can still thrive.
