Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle tells House of Commons he is HIV positive

Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle tells House of Commons he is HIV positive

December 1 marks the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day, a time to raise awareness for the deadly disease and rally around those affected by the HIV virus.

"In all this, we need the political will; we need the investment from governments, partners and private sectors, and most of all we need the communities to promote demand for HIV testing services".

At the 13 th International AIDS Conference held in Durban in July 2000 eleven-year-old Nkosi, dressed in a suit, holding a microphone and showing a wide smile revealing his pearly white teeth, stood on stage.

Dr Baird continued: "Whilst the epidemic is slowing in the United Kingdom, almost half of people who test positive find out very late that they have HIV, meaning the virus may have damaged their health permanently, which is why early diagnosis is so important".

Despite the passage of the Ghana AIDS Commission Act 2016 (Act 938), which is to protect the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS, stigmatization and discrimination very much exists in the country. The best way to prevent HIV is to stay safe and, per today's theme, know your status.

W. Bush, the 41st USA president, dies
Bush's death came seven months after that of his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush , to whom he was married for 73 years. Later, he sent troops to the Mideast to repel Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in his attempted takeover of oil-rich Kuwait.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said in a tweeted video: "A future with no HIV infections is a real possibility".

Among young people aged 15-24, new infections declined from 28,800 in 2010 to 17,700 in 2017.

Medical expert, Dr Wasim Khawaja from Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) said that there is no cure for HIV infection, however, effective antiretroviral (ARV) drugs can control the virus and help prevent transmission so that people with HIV, and those at substantial risk, can enjoy healthy, long and productive lives.

In October, three children living with HIV/AIDS were reportedly rejected in a number of schools in Samosir Regency, because the parents of other students were anxious that their children would get infected. We also have to build strong linkages to guarantee HIV prevention, care and treatment services after testing. The global goal is to end AIDS by 2030. Speaking to the Sunday Observer, Rohan Krishantha* in his mid 30s said he did not use a condom, though he knew how to use it, because he trusted his partners.

TCE Field Officers and volunteers build relationships with communities to provide access to HIV testing in hard-to-reach areas and among the at-risk populations.

Measure ending US support for Yemen war clears Senate hurdle
The bill, which would end US military support for the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen, passed by a vote of 63-to-37 on Wednesday. In an op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal , Pompeo said the Crown Prince has moved the country in a reformist direction.

Approximately 1 in 3 deaths among people with HIV is caused by TB.

Mr Wright said the rapid testing program could also be beneficial against gonorrhoea and chlamydia.

The people who are diagnosed with HIV are encouraged to enroll for treatment at local health centers.

Consultant Venereologist, NSACP, Dr. Chandrika Jayakody said, changing the behaviour of people is of utmost importance for the prevention of HIV/AIDS. Then, once you're sexually active, you should continue to get tested regularly.
