In this episode we will discuss HIV with D-Rek. HIV or Human Immunodeficiency Virus can be spread by blood transfusions, which was the case for D-Rek, who had heart surgery as an infant.
HIV stigma is negative
attitudes and beliefs about
people with HIV. It is the prejudice that comes with
labeling an individual as part of a group that is
believed to be socially unacceptable. Let’s Stop HIV Together raises awareness that we all have a role to play in stopping HIV
stigma. When we support people with HIV, we make it easier for them to live healthy lives.
