Research reveals stigma remains as Australia marks World AIDS Day

Nkosi-Bhekisisa in 2000. He died a year later

1, and San Antonio is marking the one year anniversary of its participation in an global program to get people tested, diagnosed, and treated for the disease. I hope that more people will understand that effective treatment keeps people who are HIV positive healthy, and it protects their partners. Professor Steffani Strathdee at the University of California San Diego says one of the biggest challenges is that HIV often affects people on the fringes of some societies around the world.

The United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) identifies stigma and discrimination as one of the major barriers preventing people from getting tested, while the lack of access to confidential HIV counseling and testing causes many to only get test when they have fallen ill or hospitalized.

Significant progress has been made in the AIDS response since 1988, and today three in four people living with HIV know their status.

About AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization, now provides medical care and/or services to over one million people in 42 countries worldwide in the US, Africa, Latin America/Caribbean, the Asia/Pacific Region and Eastern Europe.

Half of the people who die of HIV-related illnesses are on antiretroviral drugs, a new report has shown, raising questions about whether they are strictly following their medication regimes.

On the stigma surrounding HIV, Russell-Moyle added: "Of course there are low level elements of stigma in every day life, in terms of just lack of knowledge, people reacting with guttural reaction". He is the second MP to disclose that he is living...

He stood down from the Commons at that year's general election.




He's the only current Member of Parliament to reveal he has the virus.

He said: "One of the things that happened was the Sunday Times found out and they were going to run a story and I talked with the editor". And I said, 'Actually, I don't think I'm ready to do this yet'.

More information is available at the Centre for Social Research in Health.

To reach our goal of ending AIDS by 2030, let's commit to stepping up efforts to address health inequities and promote universal access to HIV and health services that leave no-one behind.

A tree-lighting ceremony outside the Bloomington Hy-Vee Friday evening marked the start of World AIDS Day activities in the Twin-Cities.

At the ceremony, condoms and other HIV preventive materials were freely distributed to participants and hundreds of people voluntarily participated in HIV testing.
