Jacqueline shares memories of an earlier time. Another life, when she and her husband worked in South Africa and dreamed of a very different future. Now HIV positive and having already lost a daughter to the virus, she struggles to raise her two children alone in Cameroon’s capital city Yaounde.


Jacqueline’s husband left the country soon after she was pregnant with their second and child. Jacqueline’s older son Giaum, is now five, and is also HIV positive.

SOUNDBITE Jacqueline:
“She has been a good sister. A good everything. She is just like, in short there is no secret I can hide from her. She is just like my sister.”


The women volunteer at the hospital where they do counselling for families who have just found out their status. They visit them at their homes and often, as stigma is still high, act as a substitute family for those who are abandoned.


SOUNDBITE : Genevieve Ongyateyaye, Centre d’enhaide d’ assistante des mere, Association of Positive Mothers (French):
