December 1st- World Aids Day

December 1 is World AIDS Day. The theme is Getting to Zero: Zero Discrimination, Zero New Infections and Zero AIDS-related deaths.

2.4 million people are HIV positive in India
India has reduced new HIV infections by 57% since 2001
Not enough ART – anti-retroviral therapy: Less than 10% people getting drugs
Drug addicts, men who have sex with men (MSM) and female sex workers are the high risk groups
Still need to fight the stigma

The biggest challenge in India after the lack of drugs is the stigma attached to the ailment.

FIGHT THE STIGMA , UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM , TAKE THE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS, CARE FOR THE AFFLICTED WITHOUT PREJUDICE
