10: Sanjeevani: early ageing and HIV survival in queer Mumbai


Three case studies from Mumbai illustrate the effects of immunosenescence on long-term HIV survivors. Many of the medical, psychological and social characteristics of ageing characterise the condition of positive women and men in their thirties and forties, demonstrating the way age is in many ways a social construct, but also showing how long-term survival depends on social support networks, like the community-based organisation Sanjeevani, which promotes intimacy and activism.
