"I had heard of kala azar but did not know what HIV was – we do not speak of this disease openly here. Only my wife knows about my illness and treatment and she has been by my side from the beginning. After visiting MSF ward and talking to the doctors and counsellor there I do not feel scared now, despite multiple relapse of Kala-azar." Since August 2015, MSF has been working on treating Kala azar-HIV co-infection in Bihar where patients like Sanjay receive free medical care as well counselling and support in order to address this emerging public health challenge and the stigma associated with it.
