My Life with HIV in 2011: Charles


Charles Sako is 41 and lives with his partner and three-year old daughter in Kibera, a deprived area of the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. Charles is HIV positive and is being treated at an MSF clinic in Kibera. Six years ago, after he had started antiretroviral treatment, Charles documented his life in pictures in a project called 'My Life with HIV'. Now, in 2011, Charles is a healthy and active individual, working as a receptionist in a health centre to support his family. His child, Gift Sandra, is HIV negative and Charles has plans to become a truck driver to further his dreams and ensure financial security for his family.
