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. Unfortunately youths of today don’t take dating to be a serious thing some view it is a chance to engage in sex others view it as a way to be close with people of the opposite sex. 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...

Most people in between the age 15-24 are found in romantic relationships just for the fun of it. If you are dating and you fall in this age ratio ask yourself this ‘is this love or infatuation?’ then take yourself back to the times when you are together. Do you act like you love each other or do you act like you want each other, do you only talk about sex and things related to each other’s bodies. In most adolescent relationships sex is a must but why should it be when se...

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...


Let's talk about AIDS. Who has not heard about it? Unfortunately, this pandemic has been a part of our lives. According to WHO (World Health Organization): ''Since the beginning of the epidemic, almost 75 million people have been infected with the HIV virus and about 36 million people have died of HIV. Globally, 35.3 million [32.2–38.8 million] people were living with HIV at the end of 2012. An estimated 0.8% of adults aged 15–49 years worldwide are living with HIV, althoug...

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...
