With Oxleas' help, I have taken charge of my health

Patient stories: Emma 2015

Five years ago, Emma came to Oxleas unable to take her HIV medication because of a phobia.

She frequently missed appointments and had depression. Today, with help from our Community HIV Team, her phobia of taking tablets has been overcome and she is able to take charge of her health. She has also joined a monthly women's group where she comforts others with HIV.

She said she would have died without the help she got from the team and now has a future to look forward to.
