World AIDS Day 1st Dec 2014 – Ending the stigma of HIV
Once again we arrive at yet another World AIDS Day.
World AIDS Day was first conceived in 1987 by 2 officers of the WHO James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter. It has been held on 1st December every year since 1988.
This year, the theme for World AIDS Day 2014 is “Getting to zero”.
This theme has remained unchanged since 2011.
Slowly but surely, we are realizing that we can be the first AIDS free generation.
For the first time in history, the number of people diagnosed with HIV is fewer than the number of people getting access to anti-retroviral drugs.
We need to continue to bring down barriers to HIV testing by fighting the stigma.

A total of 155 new HIV cases were reported among Singapore residents between January and June this year. Of these, 52 per cent were detected when patients were seeking treatment for other ailments. Only 12 per cent of these cases came about as a result of patients coming forward voluntarily.
