HIV Advocates Urge Women To Make Fight Against HIV A Personal Commitment

May 20, 2015

 

HIV is still a huge issue for women. The numbers are still frightening – women still account for 20 percent of all new HIV infections while African-American women account for roughly two thirds of this population. Although the overall number of HIV infections is down, what’s alarming is that a staggering 84 percent of new female HIV infections are actually attributed to heterosexual sex. This is a statistic that everyone should be aware of and should know how to properly address.

 

are_hiv_symptoms_in_women_likely_to_be_different_1927_xThis is also the very statistic that drives HIV Advocates to urge women to continue the fight against HIV. In fact, the group urges women to make the fight a part of their personal, individual commitment. Women should not only discuss these alarming facts among friends and family, they should also advocate governments to listen up and take notice.

 

Dr. Susan Blumenthal, amfAR Senior Policy and Medical Advisor, has said it: the key to reducing HIV infections among women is advocating for healthcare public policy changes. This means that unless people remain uninsured, unaware of the risks and unable to receive proper HIV care, then the figures will rise.

 

According to Dr. Blumenthal, among the public policy changes “are ensuring women are adequately represented in clinical trial research; developing prevention technologies specifically for women; doing interventions for women facing HIV as a result of violence; increasing access to women’s reproductive healthcare; and advocating for Medicaid expansions.”

 

The challenge now is: how do you get involved in the fight? Simple: join HIV Advocates, a global initiative to share news, experiences, strategies as well as new tools that aim to energize human rights movements and communities fighting HIV/AIDS.

HIV Advocates Reiterates The Need To Get Tested

May 19, 2015

 

If there is one thing that people should never ever think of is that it is next to impossible for them to get infected with HIV. Truth is, even people in their 60’s still get infected.

Jonathan Blake portrait

Take the case of Jo Josh, a 66 year old woman who lives in Reigate and who has a 25 year old daughter. She is a woman living with HIV. The news first came as a shock to her and it took her years to learn how to deal with the reality of it all. Another case is that of Wales resident 58 year old Steve Craftman. He was diagnosed in 1987. In his own words, “I have done a lot of grieving.” He and his partner had to move to a tiny town just to escape the threats and abuse. A third example is 33 year old Lizzie Jordan. The mother of a 10 year old lost her partner, who also happened to be the father of her child, on the fourth day since he came home feeling unwell.

 

HIV truly does not choose its victims. Practically everyone is vulnerable to it, to its risks and even to the effects of living with it. People living with HIV oftentimes do not know that they carry the disease. They are also subjected to societal violence, stigma and abuse.

 

These are the issues and concerns that HIV Advocates want to bring people’s attention to. It is high time for everyone to get tested. Before you think that there is virtually no way for you to get infected, get tested!

 

Join HIV Advocates today and be an ally in the fight against the disease.

 

HIV Advocates, an initiative supported by Levi Strauss Foundation and powered by B-Change Foundation, encourages members of the LGBT community to speak up by exploring the power of social media. Through the HIV Advocates’ online channels, the LGBT community and other stakeholders can start conversations, spark the interest of the public, come up with various plans of action and continue with information dissemination to fight HIV and the stigma that comes with it.

Get These Right Haircuts For Your Face Shape At ERA Barbers Hong Kong

ERA Barbers Hong Kong has these suggestions for you to get the right haircut based on the shape of your face:

 

Oval Face Shape – consider yourself lucky if you have this face shape because you can virtually rock just about any hairstyle! Just don’t choose a full length fringe since this can make your face look rounder.

 

Square Face Shape – a tight, short haircut can enhance your chiseled features. Consider a haircut that’s a bit soft around the edges.

 

Oblong Face Shape – style your hair onto your face if you have this face shape. This will make your features well proportioned. Avoid haircuts with sides too short so your face wouldn’t look more elongated.

 

Do you have round, diamond, heart and triangular face shapes? ERA Barbers Hong Kong also has great haircut suggestions for those kinds of facial features. Best reason to go call and set an appointment today so the pros at ERA Barbers can help you out.
