HIV/AIDS is a world epidemic. Although we are making new advances in combating this virus, there are many new infrections every year. The best way to keep yourself safe is to stay informed. You should know what how it spreads and how to prevent it. You should take a HIV/AIDS test if you are involved in any risky behaviors. You should tell others the importance of getting tested and prevention. There is no cure for this virus, so there is no room for ignorance on this matter. HIV/AIDS is not the death sentence that it was 30 years ago. People are living longer lives with the virus than they ever have before. Whether you are positive or negative, please take the time to learn more about HIV/AIDS and pass that information on to others. It is never too late.
