On this 1 December 2021, the World Health Organisation (WHO) is calling on global leaders and citizens to rally to confront the inequalities that drive AIDS and to reach people who are currently not receiving essential HIV services. You can find out more about World AIDS day here.

Our long time commentator Pandora sends this message :
“We have Covid and the battle isn’t over. We also have HIV and still the battle isn’t over with that either.
Stigma holds people back from testing. Once tested you can make proactive decisions about your health to protect you and others.
Now we have medicine and options for people who find it difficult to take pills at the same time each day with injections available every couple of months.
So why delay? Get tested. Become aware of your HIV status. Save lives.”
