Today, December 1st, marks the world’s AIDS day … I can still remember my first trip to Eastern Africa to volunteer with Students for International Change (now Support for International Change) in Tanzania where we were educating locals in rural and remote villages about HIV/AIDS and the stigma associated with it … That was a life-changing trip indeed …

The good news is that

“Data released by UNAIDS and the WHO highlights that beyond the peak and natural course of the epidemic HIV prevention programmes are making a difference. According to 2009 AIDS epidemic update, new HIV infections have been reduced by 17% over the past eight years.” – UNAIDS.org
