The HIV/AIDS Pandemic affects every human being on the planet. No we are not ALL infected. However, this disease has changed the face of the earth and we will never be the same again.
My interest in the Pandemic is from the standpoint of a human being. I am human and so can only live and choose wisely so that I might remain uninfected. I bear no ill-will or prejudice toward those who lived or chose otherwise. How could I even fault the many innocent persons who have been infected because their partners, whom they trusted, put them at risk?
I chose to become an Advocate of Persons Living With HIV and AIDS. It begins with information. Education with compassion transforms prejudices. Below is a list of resources that you can bookmark for your own use or to share with others. Feel free to leave your contribution to this list as well.
