The 1st of December every year is World AIDS Day. It is a time for us to look at ourselves and examine our behaviours and our perceptions around HIV and AIDS.
Do we really know enough about HIV?
Do we ever talk about HIV?
Do we accept people who are HIV positive?
Do we treat them the same way we treat everyone else?
Are we still scared of HIV?
Do we know how to manage it?
