December 1st marks the awareness of the AIDS pandemic, which is by the spread of HIV infection. World AIDS Day is also a day to mourn those who have passed away due to the disease. Globally, individuals, government, NGOs and health officials observe this day most times with education on prevention and control of AIDS.
In Nigeria, the 2016 Federal theme is ”Leadership. Commitment. Impact.”
To help those who are in pain, let’s not stigmatize them, rather show love and care. You can also donate to organizations that offer medication and relief for those who are suffering from the disease.
Also, we should try as much as possible to get tested at least every six months; protect yourselves when engaging in sexual activity, sterilizing personal effects that could leave at risk and see a doctor when you notice anything in your body metabolism.
