HIV awareness is not about the person living with HIV but really the attitudinal barriers created by a society that prevents a person to participate fully and effectively in the society on equal terms with a person without HIV. People living with HIV have the same rights as everybody else to live as equals in society.

Our goal is to create that change of perception on people living with HIV in the society and help them find hope and continue living a fulfilled life., a life of purpose.

Outdoor activities such as gardening, walking and cycling are not only good for your physical health, but can improve your mental health too. Those who are more active have a greater sense of wellbeing and have lower rates of depression and anxiety. Even simple activities like taking a stroll in the park, or doing some gentle outdoor exercise can have big benefits for our mental wellbeing.

Sometimes, getting the motivation to ‘get up and get out’ can be difficult, especially if you’re depressed or feeling low. But making that effort can give your mind a real boost.

HIV is spread by sexual contact with an infected person, by sharing needles and/or syringes (primarily for drug injection) with someone who is infected, or, less commonly (and now very rarely in countries where blood is screened for HIV antibodies), through transfusions of infected blood or blood clotting factors. Babies born to HIV-infected women may become infected before or during birth or through breast-feeding after birth.

Some people fear that HIV might be transmitted in other ways; however, no scientific evidence to support any of these fears has been found. If HIV were being transmitted through other routes (such as through air, water, or insects), the pattern of reported AIDS cases would be much different from what has been observed. For example, if mosquitoes could transmit HIV infection, many more young children and preadolescents would have been diagnosed with AIDS.
