As the day of December 1st nears, which is when we commemorate the World Aids Day, I would take this opportunity to speak as a medical practitioner and as a concerned citizen to all those who are in my reach about it. Our program and our efforts would be futile if each one of us does not feel his/her individual responsibility to care. Even if you are not a patient or perhaps related to someone who has AIDS, you should still assume the responsibility of an ambassador of its prevention by reading about it, learning about it, and spreading knowledge about it. You should know that it’s important and incumbent upon you to encourage anyone who is a silent patient and going through this alone. Be there for others and let them know their life is more than the stigma. The stigma is a lie whereas their life is precious.
