Haiti has long been associated with the AIDS epidemic, due to the high numbers of people living with the virus. Poz magazine just posted an article online about this, and Poz Blogger Oriol Gutierrez just posted about the situation, providing links on how you can help.


Oriol writes: “Everyone in Haiti deserves our help, but the situation is especially dire for Haitians living with HIV/AIDS. According to UNAIDS, approximately 120,000 Haitians are HIV positive.”

You can still text 90999 to donate $10, and after the second earthquake we should all do what we can to help out. The relief efforts and response to this tragedy has been heartening to see, and I’m glad that the community of positoids in Haiti, often overlooked, are being considered as we all wonder what we can do to pitch in.

Hope this finds everyone safe and sound as our thoughts go out to those in need.

Positively Yours,
