Women and HIV/AIDS

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton speaks at the XIX Int'l AIDS Conference -Washington DC (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

Women are still bearing the burden of HIV/AIDS. We make up more than one half of the 34 million adults living with HIV/AIDS worldwide. We have a responsibility to join with all women globally to ensure that policy is shifted toward making prevention practices, education and equitable health care available to all demographics.

In many countries women are not able to negotiate condom use. Biologically women are twice more likely to become infected with HIV through unprotected heterosexual intercourse. We must engage and share the stories of those who are living with HIV/AIDS. We must engage our children in the conversation and educate them. We all have a role to play in 'turning the tide' for our adolescent girls. There is a persistent increased rate of infection among adolescents, particularly girls. In 2011 among the 2.2 million adolescents living with HIV/AIDS, 1.3 million were girls.

As mothers, we must take the opportunity to talk with our children about the dangers of engaging in unprotected sexual activity. Even though we prefer that they abstain from sexual activity, we must allow good sense to prevail and educate them. By educating them, we empower them to make smart, safe decisions. Be engaged, be supportive and be one with our sisters globally as we work towards an AIDS free generation.

I was infected with GENITAL WARTS 2013, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution out so that my body can be okay. One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure her HVP and gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the GENITAL WARTS that was in my body got vanished . so if you are also heart broken and also need a help ON GENITAL WARTS OR HVP, you can also email him at:

  40. Am from USA, am here to give my testimony about how i
    got my HIV disease and how I was flew from it quickly after having on
    trust on my spell doctor who cured me immediately. Since the year I
    married to the man I did love because my parents false me to marry him, I
    have not been enjoying my relationship and sex life with him, he do
    spend time on his work and don’t have time for me sometimes, he do sleep
    at his work and also do carry women’s because he has the money to spent
    but doesn’t spend it on me. So I was so jealous to the extent that I
    can’t even control my anger and I decided to start cheating on him with
    my ex-boyfriend, because my husband do not always be at home expect on
    weekends, I have sex with him without protection, after some months been
    in love with my ex-boyfriend I was so sick and I decided to go to test
    and I found that I was HIV positive I feel so sad and was ashamed
    because I did know how to open up to my husband I hate before, my
    ex-boyfriend denied me and when my husband found about what was going on
    he divorced me and I was ill for good 3years I went to many places for
    solutions but there was no solutions. So one day I was asking GOOGLE
    some questions on how I can get a cure and how I can get some
    medications which I will be taking to my own surprise they brought one
    email out named
    that this powerful man can cured HIV, I did believe about the cure
    before but I took the email and searched it on GOOGLE and I found many
    good testimonies about him, people have been giving more testimonies
    about him so i contacted him about my situation, he told me all the
    procedures which I will take, And I did before I knew what was happening
    he called me and told me to go for an HIV test which i did and when the
    result was out I was HIV negative. Thanks to draihomuhelpcenter, now as
    I am giving this testimony I am now fully settle down with my husband
    now and we both loved ourselves, I give this testimony for people around
    that was in my shoes so that they can also be cured like me, so if you
    also need a solution also you can email him at
