Angelina also works with adolescents and young people living with HIV, where she supports them around various issues and coping strategies including HIV Treatment Literacy and general well-being around living with HIV.
As a woman living with HIV for two decades, Angelina is passionate about advocating for the sexual health and reproductive rights of women living with HIV.
