Activist becomes symbol of struggle for rights of Mexico’s HIV/AIDS community

Activist Alain Pinzon has become a symbol of the fight to ensure access to medication and freedom from discrimination of people living with HIV/AIDS in Mexico, where that autoimmune disease claimed 4,573 lives last year.

“I’ve had and continue to have problems with my diagnosis. That’s why I created the support group (VIHve Libre). I created the support group because of my problems and because someone told me one day, ‘surely you’re not the only one having these difficulties,'” Pinzon told Efe in an interview on World AIDS Day.
