Kolkata's Cafe Positive: Where a positive diagnosis is not the end of life
Cafe Positive, opened in mid-July, has turned a garage into a space for youngsters with an HIV positive diagnosis. With the help of the Organisation of Friends for Energies and Resources (OFFER NGO), they run the cafe. The managers were all diagnosed with HIV when they were young, and they grew up in shelters. They say they feel there should have been better care for people like them. Now, they're working six-hour shifts and travel 21-kilometres from their home to the Jodhpur Park cafe by bus to serve customers a hot cup of java.
