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...

One component of my To-watch list I never really get to check out is Shuga. Shuga is a soap opera by MTV Networks Africa in association with the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and other partners to create awareness about HIV, AIDS and responsible sexual behaviour. It airs in seasons and episodes so it would be around for a while. As soon as I got the news that the second season of Shuga Naija had been released, I could not wait a moment to get watching. Shuga Naija is the adapted...

Today is the last day of the AIDS conference, it has been such a great experience and opportunity that obviously is once in a lifetime. The meeting were great but for the entire week I've been asking: where are the Latin Americans representatives at the conference?. It seems that there are no Latin Americans at the conference at all, great disappointment because there's a lot of struggles going on, specially in Central America. We had an little space today on the plenary room w...

Have you heard about the 20th International AIDS Conference taking place next week in Melbourne, Australia? I am saddened to learn that many people aboard the Malaysian Airlines flight that crashed over Ukraine were en route to attend the conference. Some of the world’s top AIDS experts were among its victims. My thoughts are with those affected by the tragedy. Scientists, activists, policy makers and people living with HIV will gather at the conference to examine the global,...

During my freshman year in high school, I wrote a research paper about the importance of social media in the Arab Spring. In it, I discussed the use of Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites in organizing and campaigning in the revolution. Last spring, I saw a documentary entitled Blood Brother, at Sundance London, about an American who ventured to India and spent his time at an orphanage for children with HIV/AIDS. The movie conveyed, using a beautiful personal tale and s...
