Didn’t celebrate World AIDS day

I should have blogged about this as I do every year. But I was in Bangkok Thailand and had very little access to internet.

So I just thought about many relatives that I have lost to AIDS including my uncle who died 9 years ago (it feels like yesterday).

30 years later, AIDS is still on the rampage. Now we are talking about stopping the Global fund due to global economic crisis.

Give me a break. When we are busy investing in nuclear weapons , how can we say we do not have the money for ARV’s to help the many African who have the disease.

My theory: if AIDS was more common in Europe funding never have been an issue. As beggars we do not have options but to keep on pleading with them.

Rest in peace all those who have died.
