In the beginning was the word. How conversations about HIV help teenagers manage their condition

Today, HIV is a chronic condition that one can live with for a long time, fully and actively, without transmitting the virus to an HIV-negative partner, enabling the creation of families, childbirth, and child-rearing. The primary requirement for those infected is to rigorously maintain lifelong therapy, consistently monitor the condition, and regularly consult healthcare professionals.  HIV demands significant self-discipline and responsibility from the individual living with it. We inquired with Maria Bryanskaya, a representative of the Children Plus Foundation and coordinator of the Trampoline project, about nurturing these qualities in adolescents facing difficult life situations, including those in orphanages.
