Nick Clegg’s message for World AIDS Day

Nick Clegg’s message for World AIDS Day reflects the National AIDS Trust’s Fact Up campaign. They want the UK to learn five facts about living with HIV in the UK. These are:

1. People living with HIV live a normal life span if diagnosed and treated in time

2. There is no job which someone can’t do specifically because they have HIV

3. Treatment can mean that people living with HIV are no longer infectious

4. Men and women living with HIV can become parents of an HIV-free baby.

5. BUT people living with HIV still face stigma and discrimination.

More information is available at HIV Aware.

Nick’s message is also available here on You Tube.

Nick Clegg’s message for World Aids Day

Nick Clegg has recorded a video to mark World Aids Day today. In it, he talks about tackling the stigma still associated with the condition which makes people afraid to talk about HIV-related issues or seek help. He says it’s unacceptable in 2012 and that people with HIV should be treated with respect and dignity. He concludes:

There is so much more still to be done. Let’s work to create a world which is free, finally, from HIV.
