World AIDS day

By Thireshni Sanasy

Today marks the anniversary of World Aids Day. The HIV/Aids epidemic is unfortunately escalating and now an estimated 46 MILLION people from around the world are infected.  Don't become a statistic! Become AWARE!

 Artist statement: Mduduzi Xakaza

HIV/Aids is a universal adversary threatening the survival of humanity. As long as our world is still characterised by economic competition and the subsequent marginalisation of the poor – rather than co-operation and compassion based on humanitarianism – the populations of the developing world are destined to be wiped off the face of our planet.
