"World AIDS Day: Shedding the Stigma of the Scarlet ‘Plus’"
By: Marcus J. Hopkins, Blogger

As an HIV and STD/STI educator, one of the most important messages I try to convey to people is that a virus doesn’t care about who you are – it doesn’t see age, race, sex, or social, political, or financial backgrounds. HIV can happen to virtually anyone, excepting the incredibly small minority of people who are believed to have partial or complete immunity to HIV (less than 1% of the world’s population), and as such, we should all take ownership of how we protect ourselves against infection.

More importantly, we should recognize that, because anyone can become infected with HIV (and other STDs/STIs), awareness, education, and protection are not just important for certain demographic groups, but for everyone. HIV is no longer a problem that affects just the “Four-H Club” – Homosexuals, Heroin users, Hemophiliacs, and Haitians – it is now a global issue, and no society or subculture is left untouched.
