Don McCullin/Christian Aid

Andiswa Tyhuluba, 24, is one of Nomalunga's patients. Andiswa is waiting to start her antiretroviral treatment. "Nomalunga makes a big difference in my life - it is important to me that she is also positive, she understands me. I have known her a long time, I remember her when she was as sick as I am now."
