World AIDS day was ended in great company spreading awareness... on Twitpic

In light of the HIV/AIDS education, myself and a couple of friends grabbed some coffee and walked the streets around Rainer valley in Seattle passing out educational material to different businesses.

World AIDS day was ended in great company spreading awareness... on Twitpic

December 1st, World AIDS Day is a date for people to think about and act upon the global HIV epidemic. HIV continues to have a devastating impact on millions of people around the world. Whilst this infection can be prevented, HIV transmission continues to occur.
When HIV/AIDS was first discovered, no one could have predicted how the epidemic would spread across the world and how millions of lives it would change. There was no real idea what caused it and consequently no real idea how to protect against it.

HIV education has been proved to be effective and necessary, both for people who are not infected with HIV - to enable them to protect themselves from HIV - and for people who are HIV positive - to help them to live with the virus.

HIV and AIDS prevention is possible, but to avoid HIV infection people need more than just factual information. People must be able to negotiate safe and responsible sexual relationships; and those who choose to have sex need access to condoms. Needle exchange should be encouraged, as they have proven highly effective at preventing HIV transmission among injecting drug users.

Look after yourself, look after one another and make our community a safer place.


  1. hi tina, yap, here in UG, it actually rained big time.i also shared with lydia asasira(your sis-my wife) about this day. many Ugandans tested for HIV/AIDS at kololo airstrip and at different coporate centers...koodos to REDCROSS. hey, i saw that many people with the virus, tend to depend so much on donations rather than using their hands and knowledge to generate income! strange though. otherwise, in case you have the same people like that, just let them know that we can help them start their own home based businesses.they can visit us: .Emmanuel

  2. Hi Tina,
    Happy New Year. missing you and hoping you become one of the greated writers in life. Maureen K
