This chapter of IRIN’s Heroes of HIV film series features Reverend Gideon Byamugisha Baguma, one of the first religious leaders in the world to disclose his HIV-positive status. For two decades, he has been breaking down barriers for people living with HIV. In IRIN/PlusNews’s film, The Reverend, he shares his journey and the many challenges that still lie ahead. The film was shot in March 2012 in Kawempe, near Kampala.
