Here are pictures of a woman identified as Folake, a survivor of HIV/AIDS who benefited from the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDs Relief (PEPFAR).

Folake received antiretroviral (HIV) treatment at a CDC/IHVN-supported treatment site (NIMR, Lagos) that saved her life.

Her photos were shared by the United States Embassy in Nigeria in order to mark the World Aids day and also to show that HIV/AIDS is not a death sentence unless you allow it to become one.

Pictured below is how she looks like before (with the disease):
