How much has changed?

While the world celebrates #WorldAIDSDay, I want you all to pause and ponder over just one thing : HOW MUCH HAVE CHANGED when it comes to HIV/AIDS? As a HIV positive person myself, I really appreciate all of you lending your support but at the same time, I sincerely wish that should you see any #stigma and #discrimination, PLEASE STAND UP TO IT AND BE THE VOICE. Alone, I can educate one person (or family) at a time but TOGETHER, we can change the entire community or the society's mindset into how they view HIV. Please, let's stand UNITED to this cause to break #HIVmyths that surround it - which give rise to stigma because of FEAR.
Here is the news that show that STIGMA IS STILL OUT THERE!! This is the ugly truth that the change is just few percentage and not the whole or even the half of what it is made out to be.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find a friendly health care provider who is knowledgeable about HIV and pregnancy. Some health care providers simply are not aware of the wealth of information about pregnancy planning for their patients living with HIV (HIV+). Perhaps even more challenging, though, are the judgmental attitudes that many health care providers still have.
