Promote positive living

Dear Editor, Yesterday, December 1, the World AIDS Day was celebrated globally. I find myself excited about the power we have to help people living with HIV/Aids. Many a time, HIV/Aids patients need the affection of their loved ones and family to make it in life yet they get stigmatized and victimized about their life situation—something very unnecessary and inhuman.

Dear Editor,
 
Yesterday, December 1, the World AIDS Day was celebrated globally. I find myself excited about the power we have to help people living with HIV/Aids.

Many a time, HIV/Aids patients need the affection of their loved ones and family to make it in life yet they get stigmatized and victimized about their life situation—something very unnecessary and inhuman.

Let us always visit Aids patients so that they can believe in themselves once again. With such acts, they get to know that they still have reason to live.

Counseling and helping people living with HIV/Aids is the best way of reducing its prevalence. Stigma and discrimination should  be discouraged in society. Instead, advocacy of positive living should be emphasized so that people living with HIV/Aids have a platform to air out their views.

I greatly thank the people who attended the National AIDS Day celebrations in Rubavu for making the day meaningful.
