To mark the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day, we welcomed poet, speaker and trainer Bakita Kasadha into the agency to challenge static perceptions and assumptions around being HIV+.

Bakita, who has performed poetry and delivered talks internationally, including at TEDxCoventGarden and the Houses of Parliament, spoke to W+K about the challenges and stigma of living with HIV and how the rapid advancement of medication has changed the landscape for those affected.

It was a real privilege to hear Bakita speak with candour, intelligence and humour on a potentially tough topic – big thanks to her and the W+Ked team for organising.
