The HIV and AIDS awareness day was a while ago (December 1st) .A few weeks ago I watched a video from one of my role models Troye Sivan. In this video he talked about HIV and AIDS, and the importance of being informed about it. He said that some days ago he had watched a movie called The Normal Heart, it was about HIV and AIDS. He gave a brief description of the events in the movie that lead him to come to the sudden realization that him, a 19 year old gay man, who has had a ‘’...

Goal number 6 of the millennium development goals is concentrated on 3 diseases; TB, AIDS and Malaria. These "big three" are usually prevalent in developing countries and are often identified as one of the major impediments to economic growth. Seeing as World Aids Day is December 1st and the fact that the MDGs "deadline" of 2015 is almost here, how much progress has been made so far? MDGs 6 A and B read "Have halted by 2015 and begun to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS" and "Ac...

In this generation it is normal to see young people going out and dating but not so long ago during our parents time dating was a sign that people are ready for marriage.

But we must realise is that dating among youths isn’t just fun and games during a youths teens he/she goes through puberty and...

Stigma and discrimination related to HIV/AIDS are almost as old as the pandemic itself and regrettably, often exists in health care settings. Discrimination against people living with HIV results in poor quality of care for those who are infected or suspected of being infected, frightens away potential clients in need of care, and undermines effective HIV prevention efforts by limiting individuals’ access to and use of health care services. Access to lifesaving services will de...

In a previous article, I wrote about AIDS, including three movies about AIDS, homosexuality and homophobia. One of them was ''The Normal Heart'', the autobiographical play by Larry Kramer which became a movie. When I wrote about it I mentioned my big love for it since it really inspired me. So please let me share a few more thoughts with you about this movie. In the photo you can see Mr.Ryan Murphy who many of you know from other works like "Glee" and "American Horror Story". H...

Pay for treatments, an evil act against those most affected by HIV: The poor. Yes, in Honduras people with HIV, pay for antiretroviral treatments and viral load tests and CD4, which is a constraint to care access care. This topic has been playing for a long time, demanding that treatments should be free, but governments have turned a deaf ear to this complaint. In Honduras the poor are sustained of the bureaucracy and corruption that is increasingly outrageous. About 70% of...

The International Aids Conference AIDS2014 has come and gone, but we have learnt from this conference is something we all should individually define in our own ways. For many this conference was the one for the youth, and for others it was the one we finally have a clear roadmap to ending Aids. But for young MSMs*, transgenders and adolescent MSMs it was the one where our issues weren't that important for discussion. During this conference there were several panels of discuss...
