Jyoti Dhawale-Surve

Community Advisory Board

Jyoti Dhawale-Surve, 37, was diagnosed with HIV in 2005. Born and raised in India, she currently resides in Mumbai and is married to HIV-negative partner. Jyoti’s goals are to break down the walls of stigma, fear, and discrimination (that are caused by "ignorance") by showing her face and talking about the disease, which is just a mere "virus". Her dream is to be united against HIV, to make the world a better, happier place to live in for People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). "Life is full of struggles and challenges with lot of surprises thrown in. Thus learn to *live*, no matter how challenging the situation may be!"
