President Obama spoke today, World AIDS Day, on the status of AIDS in America and to encourage all Americans to keep fighting because we will win against HIV/AIDS — but the fight is not over. He shares painful statistics on the spread of infection in the United States, but do not forget HIV/AIDS is a global issue, with an estimated 33.3 million infected worldwide. We’ve got to do more.
Learn as much as you can. Don’t feed into the social stigma. Connect with an organization. Use your voice. Get tested. Know your status. Let’s stand together and fight HIV/AIDS.
