Slam on HIV Awareness

HIV and AIDS are diseases that affect people all across the globe. It is estimated that over 34 million people are HIV positive. And that number is growing. In 2010 alone, nearly 3 million people were diagnosed with the virus.

This illness is not just fatal: it is also socially stigmatizing and damaging. Many who are affected by the disease feel ashamed to reveal that they are infected, for fear that they will be ostracized. We need you to speak out against this discrimination. We need you to educate others. We need your voice.

Use this slam as an opportunity to educate yourself and others, and remind people to get tested and practice safe sex. (Find a testing center near you).
