Call in to speak with the host
Tackling the effects of HIV can be somewhat scary and misinformative. However it must be confronted and tackled. HIV is a disease state in which the overwhelming number of people with the disease are black— Why is that? HIV has emerged as the leading cause of death among black women ages 25 to 44 and one of the top three causes of death for black men ages 25 to 54. We're all going to leave this earth one day, but isn't it better to know what one could be dealing with and be treated as opposed to hoping it will simply go away? Just like any other illness such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, obesity, if not treated, they can take you out of here sooner than you expected. Unlike these other illnesses mentioned, HIV and AIDS can be passed on to someone else through you or they to you....let's do better! Is unprotected sex worth it? Isthe taking of intravenous drugs worth it? It's time to survive and your survival and life I believe is worth so much more. It doesn't just go away...
There are steps individuals can take to help the fight against the virus and AIDS in our black community.
