From one of our patients at a decentralised site in Milongwe:
'I have spent a lot of money trying to access ARVs at Thyolo but I did not succeed. The first two weeks of taking ARVs are wonderful. I felt the difference. I actually can feel life coming back.' www.msf.ca
Just imagine what’s going to happen in Africa when there will be 40 million orphans five to ten years from now because their parents died from AIDS. Besides the individual tragedies, this means destabilization of whole societies. www.unaids.org
What sort of people are we? Can we use the words 'compassion', 'humanity', 'dignity' of our fellow man and woman? They all become hollow. We can all do something about AIDS depending on who we are.
The spread of AIDS throughout the world is the worst public health crisis in history… The revolution to end this horrible disease will require sustained action on the part of millions of people. "Walk the Walk" in joining the worldwide battle against AIDS. — from A Closer Walk, a film about AIDS in the world. A story about the way the world is. www.acloserwalk.org
