World AIDS Day greets us again without a cure. World AIDS Day greets us again with 1.2 million people in the United States living with HIV; 1 in 5 don’t know they have it. World AIDS Day greets us again with 34 million people around the world living with HIV. The highest occurrence of HIV/AIDS still in subSaharan Africa. In our own country gay men and Black women remain most susceptible to the disease and virus that’s gone from a death sentence to very treatable and manageable. I could blog here and wax on and on about the disease that was named 30 years ago. I could talk about stats and the health of Black women and those dying on a daily. But even after all of that blog write waxing the end result remains the same everyone should be tested. People’s perceptions about the disease need to change (though I doubt they will). And at the end of the day AIDS research needs to be funded so that we move past the hope of possible cures that stop the disease’s spread and simply kill the disease completely.
