Tuesday, Sept. 9, was just another day for many of us. We woke up and fed ourselves, and perhaps kids, pets and other loved ones, too. Those of us on antiretrovirals for HIV treatment or pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) -- or meds and supplements for other conditions -- took our pills and potions. And, across 13 countries on four continents, some of us snapped a photo and contributed it to A Day With HIV.

For the past five years, A Day With HIV has stepped out against stigma, by sharing pictures and stories of people affected by HIV. A Day With HIV is sponsored by Positively Aware, the U.S. HIV treatment journal published by Chicago's Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN). This year, Positively Aware is working in partnership with Let's Stop HIV Together, an HIV awareness and anti-stigma effort of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

TheBody.com is happy to share a slice of life from that day, with selections from around the clock on A Day With HIV.
