Scaling-up HIV testing is critical to end the AIDS epidemic in Asia-Pacific

August 5, 2015

 

There are over 10 different organizations that include sexually transmitted infection programs and HIV/AIDS programs as well as civil society and development groups that have come together to make sure that people with HIV are aware of their status and receive proper medical treatment. There was a very recent meeting which was headed by the World Health organization and the Joint United Nations program on HIV/AIDS in Manila.

Antiretrovirals reduce the number of HIV related deaths as well as their transmission and there has been research done to prove this. The trick is catching the infection early or else the success rate is much lower. The WHO Regional Director for The Western Pacific said that it is absolutely essential to get treatment early and that it is equally important that there are an increasing number of different ways to catch the infection.

anti-hiv-test-shutterstock-21050718_5EF7699C8B1244E2AFBAF3D1B3DDA34C

Gay men, transgenders, sex workers, and people who do drugs all have a high chance of getting HIV, these are also the people who usually lack the proper knowledge of the disease and proper treatment. The UN has called this an epidemic as in 2013 only 1/3 of at risk groups actually knew about their HIV positive status so they set a goal to get this all changed by 2013. The goal is to have 90 percent of people aware of their status, have them get treatment, and have viral overloads. This goal needs to be met.

Steve Krauss, the UNAIDS Director said that the very most important thing to stopping the AIDS epidemic is to test people and catch it early because it is spreading due to people not knowing their status. And when this happens it multiplies very quickly because of the diseases infectious nature.

They say that the approaches for testing need to be more diversified in terms of how often and where they are done.. The tests need to be done both at local clinics and at the bigger hospitals, it needs to be available everywhere. Another issue is that there needs to be more voluntary testing as opposed to mandatory because that scares people away. The populations that are most at risk would benefit from the local community based clinic testing because they often feel stigmatized by the larger facilities.

These more local based tests can actually be done by someone who is close to the worker or whomever is at risk and only takes one quick screening. If there is a positive result then a follow up test is done to confirm. Places like Cambodia have started to do this and it seems to be quite successful. The director of the program director for the STD facility says that it’s very important to bring the testing close to home. Everyone involved is working to make sure that these tests are made more readily available.

#Test4HIV is the name that the WHO is coming up with for their upcoming launch of the AIDS awareness campaign to increase testing. The campaign should be promoted on all possible social media to increase awareness.

HIV Advocates which is a global initiative that aims to share news, experiences, strategies and new tools that aim to energize human rights movements and communities fighting HIV/AIDS, is the answer. Supported by Levi Strauss Foundation and powered by B-Change Foundation,  HIV Advocates encourages existing and would-be activists to explore the power of social media and other Internet avenues to help spread the message across – that discrimination and stigma no longer have any place in society and that society should accept the LGBT community members as they are.

HIV Advocates supports the Stories of Being Me from Be-App

August 4, 2015

 

The world is a very diverse place with people being different everywhere. People are like snowflakes, no two are the same, so much has been proven. People come in different shapes; fat, thin, round, stalky, you name it, and they come in different colors too!

In the past there has also been a very clear definition of male and female, as well as the fact that men are supposed to be with women and that’s that. However that is an old school way of thinking for people who are closed of mind and not open to diversity, those are people that just don’t understand.

11267491_1619612181586034_8690741074462178012_n.jpg-oh=f96550cf4397fd1d5482f1406c28e83a&oe=561BF506

History has been full of bigots and people who hate anyone that doesn’t qualify as a typical man or woman and doesn’t have  a straight sexual orientation. Anyone who hasn’t fit this classic description has been persecuted by governments, religion, and other people alike; they just haven’t had it easy. People did not want to believe that anything else could exist so they tried to hide it.

Now we for the most part recognize that genders are not that simple anymore and that sexual orientation isn’t so straightforward as we once tried to force people to believe it was. Humans can be born man, woman, a mix of the two, people can change sex, and people can have relations with their own sex or another and all of that is completely acceptable.

There are lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, hermaphrodites, asexual, queers, and pansexuals among other things still; unfortunately all of these differences are still not widely accepted by society. Our society as a whole has fought for black rights, native rights, and black rights and for the most part we have overcome those obstacles of exclusion, however that is not the case for the LGBT community.

This is why Be Being Me has created an online support app for any members of the LGBT community that comes in the form of a web series called Stories Of Being Me and the purpose of it is to share the stories of the LGBT community from people across Asia. This gives people the opportunity to hear the different stories of diverse people and give them a chance to relate and find help for the abuse and persecution they have suffered as well as find a way to overcome adversity

Stories Of Being Me will come out with a new episode every Thursday for at least 4 weeks. Besides this the website offers lots of educational material to help anybody in need. As well it offers a directory for any LGBT member to find a center or organization near them where they can go to for support. You can even directly connect with other to ask for advice and find support from people in your similar situation

If you’re a proud member of the LGBT community but are still finding it hard to overcome adversity and persecution due to simply being who you are then it’s time to go to Be Being Me and check out Stories Of Being Me and let us help you.

 

BE is a peer support web-app  for young people in Asia of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, including young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. BE is a service provided to the community by B-Change Foundation.

Share a Selfie with Famous Landmark Only 10 Minutes from Hotel Royal Macau

July 29, 2015

 

Macau is a small city in terms of the landmass at only 30 square kilometers, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in history. Portuguese settlers originally settled Macau in 1557 and began to build the city up from nothing. They used the same building techniques and created the same architecture that they had in their homeland on the Iberian peninsula. Today, these centuries-old buildings make perfect tourist destinations and a couple of the most beautiful sites stand only blocks away from Hotel Royal Macau.

 

The Portuguese built many churches in Macau but few are as old as St. Lazarus Church, which is located on the Rua de João de Almeida, about four blocks from the front door of Hotel Royal Macau. Walk through the gorgeous Vasco de Gama garden, and up the road to St. Lazarus Church, where the religious structure has been since it was built in 1569. Historically, St. Lazarus served as the first church in Macau that was meant for Chinese converts. Every guest of Hotel Royal Macau should take advantage of their proximity to this special piece of history. Take a leisurely stroll from our hotel and within 10 minutes walk to Tac Seac Square or St. Lazarus Church. Share a selfie with the “Step Out, Macau” app!
11698671_454995681345929_7373590955689706239_n.jpg-oh=795e68b1e7a9c95bd8a7a7d0e23722dd&oe=56164E68&__gda__=1447575390_7af7b6a751393caa0706bb4970989de7Even closer to Hotel Royal Macau is the Tap Seac Square, in fact, it is just across the street. Tap Seac Square is lined with neoclassical Portuguese architecture that contrasts the modern skyscrapers of Macau’s skyline. The buildings of the square are peppered with archways and painted in rich hues of burgundy and gold. A visit to Tap Seac Square takes Hotel Royal Macau guests back in time, for a taste of how Macau was founded.

Hotel Royal Macau provides more than five-star accommodations. We provide our guests with a home base from which they can explore all the historical wonders that Macau has to offer. Conveniently, our central location is close to both old and new Macau, and after you take a selfie at St. Lazarus and Tap Seac, Macau’s casinos and shopping centers will be waiting.
