GROWING STRONGER

After living a high profile life as a model and wife to the then coach of the Zimbabwe national football team, Tendayi Westerhof stunned the nation by becoming the first high profile person to go public about her HIV positive status in 2002. Her enemies increased, some going to the extent of calling her disclosure a publicity gimmick. This beautiful woman has gone on to become a public figure in a very different way, as an elegant and glamourous AIDS activist in the world of modelling and the public media.
Pamela Kanjenzana lives a very different life with her HIV infection in one of Zimbabwe's high density suburbs. Nevertheless she also manages to survive by living positivly. Two remarkable examples of how living with the virus has changed
