Global AIDS Education

My Way News: "Botswana President Festus Mogae told the BBC 37 percent of Botswanans were infected with HIV. 'We don't seem to be getting on top of it,' he said bleakly. 'We have to say things like 'abstain or die'.' "

The simple fact is that they do have to say those things. In fact, parents and schools telling children to abstain may not keep all of them out of back seats, but it does impact some to wait. In these villages where it is socially approved for men to cheat on their wives and bring disease home, there needs to be a social paradigm shift where that is actually viewed as "killing your innocent wife". When you have millions of AIDS orphans, it is time to remove the stigma of sex and AIDS and open a dialogue that can save lives.
