World AIDS Day
“Today is World AIDS day. HIV and AIDS are not just a ‘gay disease’ but can impact many people regardless of sexual orientation. Whether it is passed on from needles, unprotected sex, passed on in the womb, it can really devastate lives.
This is why we need to remember those who have lost their battles and continue to raise awareness and press Government for more research into cures and effective treatments”. – Dorion Griffiths – Chair of PCS PROUD.
