World AIDS Day

Support World AIDS Day

I really wish I had the words to say what HIV/Aids has meant to me as an African woman living in the United Kingdom, the blame, the stigma and the prejudice. The lack of understanding and even the ignorance that surrounds this disease. I wear my Red Ribbon with the humility of knowing that there have been so many needless deaths, so much fear and that there are times when words can never be enough. You do not have to be HIV positive to understand. There will be assumptions made about me by those who do not know me. I took part in a poster campaign in 1991 and people's reaction was incredible.

Wear the ribbon with pride as well. May God grant that a cure will be found soon.

I too pray for a miracle cure. Did you read about that guy in the sun/news of the world who got healed. i just hope its something he has been eating that contains the cure. How else would a jamaa who was positive who continued to have unprotected sex with a positive partner, get healed.?

That poster was incredibly beautiful - I still have a copy by the way. As I said then and still saying now, I think it is great that you took part. Perhaps you helped one (or many more) women, you will never know...

Farmgal that story that appeared in the newspaper is/was not the true reflection of a medical miracle. There is a lot more to this story than meets the eye and l do not want to spread rumour and hearsay but there is a question of money involved and probably that is why it was sold to the press. There is something about the false positives in a test.

Uaridi A cure/vaccine may be possible in the next ten years, in the meantime play safe....

Mshairi, I do not have a single copy of that poster... oh well maybe look in archives somewhere.
