Andree’s stigma story

November 20, 2019

Andree tells us, when her doctor had written ‘HEP C POSITIVE’ on a pathology slip, which she unknowingly carried in her bag for some time.

Upon realising, Andre stated she was shocked and explains about the negative repercussions this unwanted disclosure could’ve had on her, or anyone else in a similar situation.

She talks about the lack of education on these matters that is still evident in the healthcare system, and notes that complaining is an option in response.
