“Did you just say you are an HIV+? From where and how did you get it? How will you be able to live like this?” These questions are blurted out whenever one is curious to know how one got affected with HIV. Instead of being supported and sympathized, HIV+ individuals are looked down upon with hatred, are discriminated and victimized by sheer pressure from the society. They are made to believe that living in fear and solitude is the only way for them to survive. That’s not true at all! HIV Advocates is a prominent organization that not only supports the HIV+ individuals but also makes sure they live a better life in the society.
Belonging to stigmatized communities can lead people living with HIV to depression, which is catalyzed by the society, making matters even worse. Though HIV still exists today(one day we hope it won’t!), there are a number of remedies and effective medication available to give a new hope and life to the struggling people who have been subjected to sheer criticism, stigmatization, depression, and despair. People living with HIV must be supported to leave behind the miserable life they’ve thought to spend their remaining days in. If you are living in fear and constantly criticized by society then know that you’re not alone. You can reach out for help and struggle to live the life that has always mattered to you and your loved ones. HIV Advocates offer their valuable services to help one’s struggle by providing news, detailed information, and experiences to build the courage needed to live HIV+.
Living with HIV is manageable if we care for our loved ones by treating them the right way. Exercising the approach towards a better life will bear fruits from the effortful struggle one has been at with HIV. Talking about their illness with sympathy, along with immediate and proper medication will encourage them to live again and will make them confident enough to help others on the verge of life. To make things more comfortable, HIV Advocates collaborates with activists and organizations to fight HIV and neutralize the hate, discrimination, and stigmatization by spreading awareness globally, so every individual is capable of living a life he has imagined.
