AIDS Epidemic

The statistics are startling with the Caribbean recording the second highest infection rate behind Sub Saharan Africa.The implications are grave for small island nations like ours as the most productive age groups fall prey to this disease.Unfortunately, the reaction to this crisis is lackadaisical. Governments seem clueless as to how to tackle this epidemic. No, its not enough neither is it realistic to preach the message of abstinence. A strong educational drive must begin in order to reduce the spread.

On the other hand too many young people and older ones as well indulge in irresponsible behaviours. I have already watched friends die of AIDS..scary isn't it? People, AIDS is more than just an acronym. Its a deadly disease. Get the facts and act on them. Protect yourselves.
