HIV is a curse from God – at least this has been the belief among some of the Muslim community living in Mombasa in Kenya.
Zuleka Abdalla is living with HIV. Her husband died in 1999. She now helps inform her fellow Muslim women about living with HIV and AIDS.
Zukeka is defiant in the face of the stigma she has experienced. Now she is calling on religious leaders to help stamp it out altogether. Zainabu Aziz met Zuleka in Mombasa.
