'Rise Up to HIV' Launches New Anti-Stigma Campaign

The grassroots group Rise Up to HIV has launched a new anti-stigma campaign to follow up to its inaugural campaign earlier this year, according to a Rise Up to HIV statement. In January, the group launched the “No Shame About Being HIV Positive” campaign. “The Summer of No Shame About Being HIV Positive” is the title of its latest effort. The group seeks photos and testimonials from people living with HIV/AIDS.

This is AWESOME. I've been HIV+ for 18 years, I've raised awareness in South Africa, cycling with AIDS Ride South Africa in 2011, stigma is dis-empowering & marginalises those infected, I've seen this face to face, and it still exists in Australia & the USA as well, it saddens me that stigma is an issue in the 21st Century, how far have we really come in 30 years?
