Messages for World AIDS Day 2021
With the world’s attention focused on the COVID-19 crisis, World AIDS Day is a reminder of the need to maintain focus on another global pandemic that is still with us nearly 40 years after it emerged.
The HIV response has much to teach the fight against COVID-19. We know that to end AIDS and defeat COVID-19 we must eliminate stigma and discrimination, put people at the centre and ground our responses in human rights and gender-responsive approaches.
Health is a human right. Health must be a top investment priority to achieve universal health coverage. On this World AIDS Day let us recognize that, to overcome COVID-19 and end AIDS, the world must stand in solidarity and share responsibility.
Eradicate IGNORANCE through power of KNOWLEDGE. Let the light of knowledge) shine on HIV, and let there be no more darkness (ignorance) that give rise to fears, stigma and discrimination. Let our goal for 2014 be to make the world a better and happy place for People Living With HIV/AIDS to live in. With Acceptance. With Love. With Respect.
HIV does not discriminate. Regardless of sexual orientation, religion, economic class, or race, you are at risk. I once considered HIV a homosexual or IV drug user disease. I really was clueless that despite being neither, I was still at risk. I was just a small town girl, college educated, and thought by only having sex with those that I was in a committed relationship, I was ‘safe’. But I am HIV positive. Get educated and protect yourself. No one deserves to feel the emotional pain, physical problems and social stigma that come along with this disease.

I want people all around the globe to know that having an HIV-free generation is possible. But we as individuals have to play our role in this fight. If you have never been tested, then get tested, know your status, get counseling and if necessary, take your drugs. To pregnant women with HIV, seek the necessary counselling, because there are service centers all around to prevent your children from getting HIV. To people who are sexually active and have tested negative, you have to either use protection or abstain to remain negative! And I don’t want to forget the government, international bodies, NGO’s and individuals that contribute in this fight – do not grow weary! If you haven’t started contributing to the fight then start now – it’s not too late!! Having an HIV-free generation is possible and it truly begins with you!!!
- African leaders, keep the promise on HIV/AIDS!!!
- Test! Test!! Test!!! And Treat! Treat! Treat!!
- We need research on vaccine, microbicide and treatment.
- The time to act is NOW.
– Bose, Nigeria
HIV can affect any one of us, we all need to look out for ourselves and others.
