Do Women Matter? #NWGHAAD

Today is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD), a very important day for us women living with the human condition of HIV. I am happy that they recognize the women warriors that have been battling this condition and have fought along with the men for our rights. It saddens me to see that women are still not included in research! How is it possible that we are taking medication STILL that is only researched on men???!!! Our bodies and anatomy are different. Every time I bring the subject up *actually for years* in conferences, panels, organizations, BIG Pharma, and everyone that will listen, they just nod their head and say, "you are right". Do we matter? Of course we matter! WE ARE A PART OF THIS FIGHT!!! 50% of people living with HIV around the world are WOMEN.
