Positively Positive - Living with HIV/AIDS

 On November 28th 1985, I was told by my doctor to inform my family, arrange my finances and funeral, I had six months to live! After four years of living in fear, my life took a dramatic turn and I embarked on a spiritual journey from fear to love! Healing does not necessarily mean cure of disease, but healing our mind and transforming our body to realize its full potential, joy and purpose. Learning about the influence that our thoughts have on our life and health, from breakdown to breakthrough. Living today as healthy and as fully as you can, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. The Abundance of Life does not come from what one can provide for oneself, but it is provided in our connectedness.

Condoms - A Standard Practice for All

By Bradford McIntyre

    We know many of our youth are having sex and will have sex in the future. To teach abstinence without including education on the need for a condom and how to use a condom will lead to more HIV and STD infections. Education is the key! 
 Around the world the use of condoms is seen as a trusted weapon in the prevention of HIV infection, however, these efforts are often hampered by religious beliefs.

Not Everyone, Who Becomes Infected With HIV, Originates From A 'High Risk' Group  by Bradford McIntyre

  Everyone is at risk of infection and worldwide infection rates show that HIV is infecting men, women and children of all ages. Millions of people, who were not considered to be 'high risk', are now infected. The outdated and inaccurate messages that continue to be broadcast contribute globally to a false sense of security.

HIV PREVENTION - Our Voices ARE Necessary

by Bradford McIntyre

   How can there be any real understanding about HIV and AIDS prevention, without the necessary information reported?

  HIV/AIDS reported in the news is minimal, at a time when it needs to be at the forefront! Why is this?

Money is being spent trying to determine ways to provide HIV prevention but in order to reach everyone; HIV needs to be in the news!

"AIDS is a war against humanity"

by Bradford McIntyre

  Individuals should not have to suffer all losses due to illness! Men, women and children are suffering with HIV/AIDS. We need to assure that these people are cared for, not discriminated against! We must provide funds for proper nutrition, housing and health care for these individuals to aid and contribute to their well-being. We need to get rid of the false perceptions and judgments. Like Doreen Millman said in Vancouver at the 1996 AIDS Conference in reference to how a 63 year old grandmother got AIDS. She said, "It just doesn't matter!" Neither does an individual's race, religion or sexual orientation matter! Don't look for differences; look at how we can help one another.
