Unwell: Ms Dilley said that a few months after finishing a relationship, she felt like she had 'a severe bout of the flu' - and was eventually urged to take an HIV test

As a people and as humans, we must take responsibility for our lack of knowledge and understand that what we see on television doesn’t speak for everyone nor does it provide a sufficient amount of information. We must fill in the blanks to make a valid conclusion.

We also must first start seeing each other as humans and not different species. I can’t fathom how the introduction of HIV/AIDS made people believe it was a “gay disease” or an “African” disease. I understand that certain diseases and infections may be more prone in certain areas due to a higher activity, but how can anyone feel they are the exception to the rule? Your location, skin color, sexual orientation, or sex doesn’t excuse your humanity.

I honestly won’t fault the woman who contracted HIV and say she was bias and this was some racial undertone. But I can say that HIV/AIDS is one of the most well-known and prominent diseases of the world and to be completely oblivious or lack knowledge about it in this day in age or even ten years ago is just baffling.

Please be sure to educate yourselves and know that NO ONE is the exception to being human.

Embrace your humanity by guarding yourself with preventive practices and knowledge.
