Another year, another anniversary and millions of people around the world continue to suffer and die from HIV/AIDS. Small good news emerged this year: “UNAIDS now says 32.7 million people were living with the virus in 2006 – nearly seven million fewer than previously estimated” (Voice of America). Some researchers now believe the number of people affected by AIDS/HIV are actually blown out of proportion. Still, we shouldn’t stop or slow down the fight against this merciless disease.
Let us continue the fight against this deadly disease in whichever way we can. Let us remember all those people who are affected by this terrible disease.
World AIDS Day, 2008.
