This week I'd like to remember all the millions of people that died of AIDS. This truly dramatic pandemic spread across all levels of societies all across the globe. We may, indeed, be lucky to live in the Western World, where HIV drugs are normally widely available. But we cannot forget that millions of young kids and babies die every minute in Sub-Saharan Africa.
I really truly hope that all the advantageous of modern medicine and biotechnology will soon discover an effective treatment for HIV and an HIV vaccine. In the meantime let us not forget those who suffer from HIV as the public stigma is still there, even in countries like the UK or the US.
My thoughts are also with those of my friends that are HIV+. May the Almighty give you strength and courage to live and once, inshallah, fight this horrible virus.
