MP reveals he is HIV positive in attempt to tackle stigma

Chris Smith MP in 2005 now Lord Smith

The fight against HIV is being won but the fight against ignorance is being lost - which is why today (December 1) people are being encouraged to #rocktheribbon to show their support on World Aids Day.

The CDC really needs to be more careful and inclusive in its statements and policies on HIV and AIDS, Weinstein concluded.

"On this World Aids Day, the DA commits itself to build One South Africa for All, where those living with HIV/Aids have access to dignified medical treatment and live free and full lives", Kopane said. Today, we are at a critical point where new HIV cases are starting to grow outside of key populations. In 2017, over 3,000 college students tested positive, many of them (81.8%) acquiring the virus through same sex relations.

In 2017, three quarters of people living with HIV (75%) knew their HIV status, compared to just two thirds (67%) in 2015.

A British member of parliament has given a deeply personal and arresting speech, disclosing his HIV positive status and calling on more funding for HIV prevention medication. This means he's been taking antiretroviral treatment, to reduce the amount of the virus in his body to a level that's undetectable.

On Friday, the eve of World AIDS Day, the Governor announced plans to expand access to treatment for low-income patients. Some campuses have even started selling cheap HIV testing kits in vending machines.

Integrating HIV testing within primary health care and into universal health coverage, including integrating HIV services into maternal and child health services, and services for sexually transmitted infections, viral hepatitis and cervical cancer in generalised epidemic settings is integral.

Meanwhile, infection rates are also rising among elderly Chinese. But not only that - if you're on treatment, you're going to feel better and you'll probably live a normal life.

City College: An awareness programme on AIDS was held on World AIDS DAY under the theme "Know your status" at City College of Arts & Commerce, Dimapur with Kuzieding Lungalang as the resource person.

Because of late detection and treatment, this demographic has a greater risk of AIDS-related deaths. Dubbed "China's Frankenstein", He altered the genes of twin girls born this month to make them HIV-resistant.

On Thursday, the Chinese ministry of science and technology stressed its opposition to the gene-editing baby experiment, and demanded a halt to the "scientific activities of relevant personnel". HIV testing is on the spotlight as the call for knowing ones HIV status, to take an informed stand, is becoming increasingly necessary to save lives.
