22nd February 2013 — If asked, many will say that gone are the days when people living positively with HIV/AIDS faced discrimination and stigma within the society.
Truth is; stigmatization and discrimination is still on the rise in the community and the worst is that this issue is greatly witnessed at family level.
This has made some people living with HIV shun from disclosing their statuses fearing to open gates for abuse, discrimination and segregation.
How will I benefit if I disclose my status? How sure am I that it will work for my benefit and that of people around me? Are some of the questions most people living positively with HIV/AIDS ask.
