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. 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 positively. Two remarkable examples of how to live whith the virus.
