Reinforcing The Campaign Against HIV/AIDS

We must leave no stone unturned in dealing with the growing issue of HIV/AIDS in our beloved country, Liberia.

By this, we should do away with utterances and comments that have propensity to stigmatize those living with the virus.

Our guidance is predicated on keen surveillance that stigmatization and discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS continue to be a major impediment to the fight against this disease in our country.

We believe most people, if not all who are tested positive, will not openly declare their status once people living with HIV/AIDS continue to be stigmatized and ostracized.

Honestly, the fight against HIV/AIDS would be meaningless once those living with the virus continue to be stigmatized and ostracized.

On the other hand, it is very important that we stop the unnecessary debate concerning where, when and how people how people get the disease and also we must dispel religious perception that people living with HIV/AIDS are cursed by God.

We encourage our religious leaders to also help take the issue of HIV/AIDS very seriously and that they must discourage utterances and comments that have the propensity to stigmatize those living with the virus.

Like the campaign against the crippling Polio Disease, we think, by showing compassion and love for HIV/AIDS victims, the fight against this deadly disease will also be successful.

To this end, we again urge those in the habit of stigmatizing and ostracizing HIV/AIDS victims to stop or else the launched campaign against the disease will not achieve its desired objectives.
