Reflections on World AIDS Day: Lerato

Written by  Lerato Lebona

World AIDS day has become more a celebration of life than a day spent grieving deceased loved ones. The reason for celebration is due to the advancement of modern medicine that allows HIV positive people to live longer, and communities have become more accepting and supportive of people living with HIV. HIV has created a platform for dialogues on societal challenges like human sexuality and poverty, among others. Even though we still have a long way to go, we are certainly in a much better place to cope with the disease and all other related medical and social ills it comes with. The day also facilitates a process of positive reflections of where we come from, where we are and where we are going. The reflection has become more positive, influencing future endeavours to deal with the disease.
