"I remember all the people who died with HIV, they’re always in my heart and I want to be their voice".

This week we welcome Adam Castillejo, The London Patient - the second person in the world to be cured of HIV.

In a truly inspiring, life-affirming interview, Adam opens up about his extraordinary journey and his mission to be a voice of hope for millions - from being diagnosed with HIV at 23 years old, to his fight against both HIV and cancer & his battle to overcome both illnesses, which stunned the world. Trigger warning: Contains upsetting audio.

The London Patient: A Cure For HIV? is a two-part series - funded by the Wellcome Trust and the British Podcast Awards Fund. What does the London Patient’s story tell us about a cure for HIV? Plus amongst a backdrop of Covid19, can the story of HIV and AIDS offer the world any hope?

The most recent estimate suggests that there are currently around 7,500 undiagnosed HIV+ people living in the U.K. If you are HIV+ and on effective treatment, you can’t pass it on. Undetectable = Untransmittable. Get tested for HIV now, stop the spread. In the U.K. visit https://www.testnowstophiv.com/.. for a free test at home kit..
