HIV Stigma: Not Retro, Just Wrong (World AIDS Day 2016 Singapore)

HIV Stigma: Not Retro, Just Wrong World AIDS Day 2016 – Singapore #HIVNOTRETRO   1st December is World AIDS day. How fast another year has gone by and here we are again recognizing another World AIDS day.   This year’s theme seeks to remind us that the disease that we know as HIV/AIDS wears a very different face today compared to when it was first discovered in the 1980’s.
