@pozzieblue: The HIV-positive OFW

Contributing writer @pozzieblue tested HIV-positive only this July, while working as a nurse in the Middle East. And so he faced not only the difficulty of being a person with HIV, but also the accompanying problem this status entails for an overseas Filipino worker, as he found himself at first isolated and then deported. And while months have passed and he is now starting a new life, he believes that “what matters is that I’m better now.”
