This paper is based on a study undertaken in 1995-1998 and is concerned with the impact that negative media representations can have on the individual living with HIV. This work took place in the United Kingdom in areas of low HIV prevalence and involved a group of people living with HIV (N = 18) and their closest supporters (N = 15). In writing this brief report, the experiences of the participants will be highlighted through presentation of their words taken from interviews. This work is put briefly into context by reference to the relevant literature.
