January is usually a quiet month at Untenu. This year not: already five times we released budget for emergency relief for LGBTIs living with HIV in Cambodia. Below we tell the stories of three men who were admitted to the hospital recently.
Halfway through Rotterdam Pride we got a request to help K.C.: he was admitted with stomach problems. Besides HIV, he was also infected with tuberculosis (TB). A week later he died. Our help was of no avail.
Y.N. worked as a journalist in Phnom Penh. Nobody knew why he often stayed at home ill. He hid his HIV status. And now he has lost his job.
