Fight against HIV stigma

Social Share

Pledging to kiss stigma and discrimination good-bye, scores of Barbadians dressed in their T-shirts marked “HIV POSITIVE” gathered in Jubilee Gardens, The City, earlier today.
Members of Parliament, entertainers and members of the public made the pledge as the National HIV/AIDS commission launched its T-shirt campaign to make life easier for those living with HIV/AIDS.
Chairman of the National HIV/AIDS Commission Dr Henrick Ellis commended those who wore the T-Shirt.
Indicating that he intended to “run up and down Broad Street” wearing his shirt, the chairman said, “It will be interesting to see after today how many of us are going to be stigmatized.” (AH)
