World AIDS Day 2007

Red ribbon world aids day

The world AIDS Day has just finished. This year´s theme was Leadership:

“Much of the best leadership on AIDS has been demonstrated within civil society organisations challenging the status quo”.

Since the first case was reported in 1981 AIDS has killed more than 25 million people and at least twice are infected nowadays. There is nothing that I could say better that others said before: we are almost customaries to see the effects of this pandemic in Africa. But Old men, not like me, maybe remember closer stories, when AIDS started to strike into our society, in those days when it was considered a plague for sodomites and junkies. 26 years have passed, all my life, and things have changed to Westerns but Organisations say now that we have started to be lazy and the number of affected is raising in Europe. We don´t know nothing about prevention, do we?

Tomorrow will be another day and the show must go on.
