Make a stand & take part in a text mob against HIV/AIDS related stigma!

* At 12.00 noon, wherever you are, send a message to 10 people about
HIV/AIDS.

call in to a radio programme or any communication channels you have
access to.

* We've come up with a few messages to help you get started:

** Marriage does not mean automatic consent to sex. Stop HIV/AIDS! 1 Dec

amplify the buzz. Take action on World AIDS Day!

I am glad at the level of response I got to this post as well as your individual efforts at making the world a better place

I have got tested for HIV 3 times. And I will still continue to check my status. It's safer to know ones status
