Abstract

Frédéric has been HIV-positive for thirty-two years. He has had to deal with complex treatments, opportunistic diseases, the loss of his partner, indifference and rejection on the part of his friends. Yet despite everything, he has a message of hope to share: today, the virus is no longer detectable in his body. He still carries the virus but feels more alive than ever.
