Let’s Encourage and Support our HIV-positive Brothers and Sisters.

The unfortunate leak of data online is going to be a test of how we stand together as one united people with our HIV-positive brothers and sisters.

Just as we would hope for others to support us when we are faced with challenges, let’s share their anxieties and fears during this difficult time.

Accord to them the due recognition and respect that they deserve as valued members of society.

Do everything possible to help them reduce stress and stressful situations, and encourage them through the ups and downs of life.

One way of supporting them is to correct any misconception about HIV.

For example, HIV is not as infectious as many common illnesses such as cold, cough or fever, and it cannot be transmitted through normal interactions in workplaces, schools, and other social settings.

It cannot be passed on through being exposed to the touching, coughing or sneezing of an infected person, and neither can it be transmitted through shaking hands, sharing of toilets, drinking from the same glass, or sharing of eating utensils with such a person.

HIV can be transmitted irrespective to sexual orientation and with appropriate treatment, the HIV virus can be kept under control.

HIV-positive individuals can be gainfully employed, live a productive life, carry out day-to-day duties, and live long healthy lives.

It bodes well to remember that your acts of love, compassion, kindness and graciousness may be returned to you during your times of need.

More importantly, bear in mind that the strength, stability and sustainability of our nation is a reflection of how we look after the people who live with and among us.
