World AIDS Day 2015

As with so many other years, I’m extremely busy with work at the moment, with no time, really, to write a proper post. Yet I wanted to mark the day, so I’m sharing the video above, “The Science of HIV/AIDS”, by ASAPScience, one of my favourite science explainer channels on YouTube. It talks about the science of how HIV/AIDS works, which a lot of people still don’t understand.

One of the things I’ve often said about remembering this day is that it’s partly about defiance of all the people who wanted us all dead, and also those who even today use HIV/AIDS as a political weapon to advocate for discrimination against gay people. I honestly don’t think that will ever change.

We have a long way to go yet before we can stop reminding people how to protect themselves, and we are probably still quite awhile away from a cure. But at least now we have some effective treatments, and that’s something.

But, even when the shadow passes, we must still remember all those we lost. It’s the duty of those of us who survived.
