Community Service Announcement: World AIDS Day

Now while this blog is generally used for discussing reviews, it is being hijacked for this one particular entry to let people know about World AIDS Day. 

December 1st every year is World AIDS Day. 

From the World AIDS Day website comes the following:

The theme for World AIDS Day 2010 is Take Action. No Discrimination. The aim is to encourage all Australians to be aware of the prelavence of HIV/AIDS; to take action to reduce the transmission of HIV by promoting safe sex practices; and to accept individuals living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

With so much information out there, it is hard to believe that numbers of infections are on the rise again. Some put it down to the fact that we have gotten lax now that the pandemic is over. Unfortunately, it isn't and people need to realise this.

If you want to help, contact your local sexual health clinic and they should be able to tell you who to speak to. Whether it be financial aide or if you want to spend a few hours delivery food. There are plenty of organisations out there looking for your help.
