WORLD AIDS DAY




There are now 33 million people living with HIV worldwide. With ever increasing infection rates and still no cure for HIV/AIDS it now more vital than ever the we protect ourselves.

Papua New Guinea has the highest infection rate in Asia-Pacific. This alone should be reason enough for people to firstly get tested to know their HIV/AIDS status, secondly for each individual to take greater care when it comes to protecting themselves (either by using condoms, practicing abstinence or sticking to one partner) and finally for everyone to take it upon themselves get educated about the issue.
