There aren’t too many things that I like to see in the “negative”. Bank accounts? Who wants to see a negative bank account? Not me. Stocks in the negative? That’s almost as bad as a bank account with a negative balance. On the other hand, when you receive your negative HIV test results, it’s definitely something to be happy about.
Yesterday I received mine. Negative.
According to UNAIDS estimates, there are now 33.3 million people living with HIV, including 2.5 million children. During 2009 some 2.6 million people became newly infected with the virus and an estimated 1.8 million people died from AIDS. Started on December 1, 1988, World AIDS Day is about raising money, increasing awareness, fighting prejudice and improving education. Get tested. Know your status. Know your partner’s status.
Have You Been Tested?
