FIGHT the EFFECTS of STIGMA
and FEAR of discrimination
People think that AIDS can be CURED by:
- The New Drugs available
- Sex with a virgin
- Sex with an animal
FACT: There is NO CURE for HIV!
BUT ANTIRETROVIRAL MEDICINE (ARV’S) can help REDUCE AND CONTROL the amount of virus in the blood so people can live a long and full life.
FACT: Sex with a virgin or animal CANNOT CURE the virus.
It just RISKS INFECTION of the virgin and is CRUEL (and a crime in many places) to animals.
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF… GET TESTED!!!
SUPPORT PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV.
