Wear the red ribbon

In memory of friends and relatives who have died from HIV/Aids

That a cure will be found soon, and that people who suffer from HIV/aids are recieve the treatment and care they need.

Wear the red ribbon. Light a candle. Say a prayer. Remember the HIV/Aids victims and their families

Just watched the CNN AID special report on AIDs and it just struck me...the reason why people in Europe arent bothered about sleeping around is coz all the AIDS programs are centered in Africa. I mean can someone make some documentary and show us white people with aids in some hospital ward. arrrggg

hear hear. and farm gal is right - here in houston some people seem shocked to be reminded that today was world AIDS day. but then again the disease can be seen in its worst in africa so maybe that is why they tend to focus on it so much

Thanks you Auntie for the post - I know what Farmgal means, its like in this country AIDS is something that happens in africa, like poverty - I wish people would take it more seriously.

From your mouth to God's ears, Uaridi and I know prayers work especially yours.

Farmgal, Spicebear and Niece Guess: A friend once told me that the west believes that all things savage, harsh, destructive and unmanagable come from Africa - therefore it is not a surprise that they would put a lot of emphasis on Africa and HIV/Aids

Mshairi: Ta for the compliment mate. I believe that God hears and answers all our prayers. I am just to stubborn and spolit to accept "Not yet" from Him.

If you look at some of the World AIDS Day Campaign (WAC) around the world the rest of the world is shown as people being positive and living with HIV but when it comes to African there are shown to be totally feeble, laid to waste in mabati hospitals. I can not understand why there are such negative messages but we live with those images until someone realises that in living and dying there has to be some dignity.

speaking of cure in kenya most government hospitals are now distributing free antiretrovirals to many patients and tho there are many patients to reach we can say the mortality is fast reducing which is a positive thing

I read somewhere that the rate of infection in Kenya is going down - baby steps but God willing we'll get there.

Mind if I toss in a plug for autoimmune diseases? They're much more rare than AIDS, which is an anti-immune disease, and the public is much less aware and informed of them.

Examples are Lupus and Scleroderma. They usually strike in the prime of life and are under researched because not many people get any one disease. But added together, they disable, incapacitate, and kill millions.
