Can you believe that 25% of Americans still believe HIV can be contracted by sharing a drinking glass? I was shocked to read that statistic from the newest report released based on The Kaiser Family Foundation’s 2011 Survey of Americans on HIV/AIDS. Perhaps I am the one who is a bit naive in thinking that we've progressed beyond the ignorance surrounding this manageable, chronic medical condition. I do understand that there is a stigma attached to HIV/AIDS. I understand that there likely always will be and the only way to combat that is through education, advocacy and spreading the truth. Please take 4 minutes out of your day to review this extraordinary video from Project Hopeful and please pass it along to family and friends.
