Today as we mark World Aids Day, we stand in solidarity with all those affected by the virus and their families. We should not stop our efforts to end HIV/AIDS through prevention and education until it is over. We also need to continue to spread awareness against HIV stigma. It must stop.  Those infected and affected by HIV are all humans and deserve the love and compassion we all do.    3.5 million people in Nigeria are HIV positive, and according to the World Health Organization globally only 57% know their status which is even less in Nigeria, we need to work together to ensure everyone has access to live healthier and longer lives in our country, through better access and assistance to antiretroviral drugs, education on prevention of spread, especially from mother to child, and counselling and psycho-social support  for those affected by HIV and their families.
