Because February 7th, is the National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the show of this week will address the Intersection of HIV/AIDS, Violence against Women and Girls, & Gender–Related Health Disparities.
Data support the need to address not only HIV/AIDS and IPV, but also their intersection:
- Most women living with HIV had experienced IPV
- Among women living with HIV/AIDS, trauma, abuse and violence are associated with less use of antiretroviral medication, decreased medication adherence, and increased risk of death
- HIV infection may trigger or augment physical violence, particularly against women
Just as the entertainment industry often recognizes ensemble casts, plays, and movies that are, collectively, greater than the sum of any individual performance, Desert AIDS Project honored a few remarkable films - and some fabulous individuals - at the February 8th, 2014, 20th Annual Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards, including And the Band Played On, Boys on the Side, Philadelphia, andd How to Survive a Plague.
Veteran Entertainment Reporter and Actor Nicholas Snow, himself a Desert AIDS Project client, and guest co-host Kristin Johnson, bring you the the most comprehensive coverage of the event available online.

HIV N AIDS INFECTED AND AFFECTED FAMILIES
The church must see that the story of AIDS is not about epidemiology, economics, or statistics. Rather it is the story of pain, anguish, fear, and neglect.
Counseling is the second area of opportunity for the church to work with those infected with the HIV virus and AIDS. They and their families are in serious need.

As Director of Volunteer Services for AIDS Community Resources, Mary Doody has been active in the fight against the spread of AIDS for twenty-three years. She was instrumental in the evolution of the agency from start-up task force responding to the immediate needs of people dying with HIV/AIDS, to a nine-county state-funded service agency now called ACR Health and expanded their services to provide support to people with chronic illnesses. There were no AIDS survivors when Mary began her service in 1990. Now, with prevention and medication, HIV/AIDs has become a chronic illness and positive individuals regularly live into their 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. During her tenure she and volunteers were instrumental developing and expanding supportive programming for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Youth in Syracuse(1998 – 2004), the Mohawk Valley (2001-2013) and Auburn as well as education to the community.
HIV has not been proven to exist, much less cause AIDS or any other disease. So says David Crowe, president of Rethinking AIDS, amd backed by some 3,000 scientists, physicians, science journailists and others, including top virologists and a Nobel Prize winner, Kary Mullis, who invented one of the procedures being used inappropriately to determine HIV "load."
An alternative view to the profit-driven unproven HIV hypothesis. What is HIV really? Has it been purified? What is AIDS? What really causes AIDS? What do we need to know about HIV testing? What do we need to know about drug treatments? Why is the Hip Hop community being targeted to get tested?
We had to do a two-part show to answer these questions. This is Part 1 of 2.
Interview by Richard Jannaccio and Chief69.
Note: The last sentence was cut off. We are trying to restore it. The response to the question was that there are numerous ways to interpret the test results. There are different HIV antibody tests produced by different companies, with different directions for interpreting the results in different countries. So if you go from one country to another, your HIV test result could change from positive to negative or vice versa. Or it could be judged "indeterminate" which means "we don't know." That's in addition to the fact that the test is not specific for antibodies to HIV. It is produced from a mixture of proteins of cultured cells and whatever may have been cultured with those cells.

As an HIV/AIDS prevention advocate, here is an introduction to my nonprofit organization and to why this cause matters a great deal to me. I am an HIV- wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt and good friend to many, who understands that a person doesn't have to be HIV+ to help make a difference.
But until those in my community find thier voices and step up to play thier own individual roles in this fight against new HIV transmissions, particularly amongst our youth, I will be here working diligently with the folks at The Power of T.E.E.N.S., Inc. help bring an end to all human suffering cause by HIV & AIDS.
The HIV/AIDS epidemic is alive and well and if we ignore it now then we will only have to be prepared to deal with it later. According to the CDC, 1 in 5 don't realize that they are a carrier of the virus and it impacts our youth ages 14-24 in large numbers on an annual basis.
If you've never had to count off for any reason, then try it today. It's simple really. Just go to a local shopping center and count as people walk by. One..two..three..four..five. One..two..three..four..five. Your have just theoretically been in the presence of at least two people who are infected with HIV who don't know it! Now that you've had this practice, try counting off the people who are in your life on a daily basis. My question to you is with this knowledge, how can you chose to do nothing? Get tested and have conversations with your children and your family members about the impact of HIV & AIDS on our communities.
