World AIDS Day 2010

December 1st is World AIDS Day and is an opportunity to educate and create awareness about the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The theme for this year is Universal Access and Human Rights in an effort to demand that all people have access to preventative resources and life saving medications.

HIV can be transmitted through anal, vaginal, and oral sex, and through the use of dirty and/or used needles. HIV can be transmitted through blood, semen, vaginal secretions, pre-ejaculate, and breast milk. Please always make sure to use protection, via condoms, female condoms, and dental dams for oral-genital contact.

Action tips for the day:

-Wear a red ribbon to support AIDS awareness.

-Educate yourself about HIV/AIDS.

-Get tested for HIV/AIDS and other STI's.

-Discuss HIV/AIDS with others, urge them to get tested and learn more.

Thank you for sharing this. I completely forgot to write a post for today for World AIDS Day. I had to put something up quickly, so I hope that you don't mind that I "stole" this article from you. If you have a problem let me know and I'll remove it. Their is also a link to your site.

Did I read right: "Universal Access" "all people?" Hard to imagine.

There will be some access - True; but that's just it "some access."

Africa can never be on par with the West in terms of access to anything.
