Ms Kwame, who was speaking to journalists at the regional celebration of the 10th anniversary of the operations of PEPFAR in Ghana, said HIV is comparable to any disease condition and there is no need to subject people with the condition to any inhuman treatment either by healthcare givers, families or the larger society.

Labour's Lloyd Russell-Moyle has revealed to fellow MPs he is HIV positive during a House of Commons debate.

Prevention can be done through practicing monogamy or practicing sex with only one partner especially married spouse, have safer sex and always use protection, get your partners tested for HIV.

The new survey found that many people with the virus said they had faced stigma across a number of settings.

"We will also facilitate the integration of vulnerable members of the HIV community into our poverty alleviation and social intervention programmes", he said.

He urged HIV patients to disregard myths of the infection being a death sentence as "HIV/AIDS can be managed like any other disease and the patients made to live normal lives".

In advance of World AIDS Day 2018, Vice President Michael Pence announced today that the United States government, through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), will invest $100 million to address key gaps toward achieving HIV epidemic control and ensuring justice for children, including by leveraging the unique capacities and compassion of faith-based organizations and communities.

Which means a quarter of people with HIV may not think twice about sharing a needle, having unprotected sex or doing other risky activities that enable HIV to spread. "The childhood so many of us take for granted".

He said: "The power is in our hands, we have the science". So that does a lot to normalise HIV in the public's mind.

According to her, 70 million people had been infected of HIV, and 35 million have died of the infection since discovery in 1983.

"These simple messages can be a powerful antidote to HIV stigma".

"There is some legal discrimination that still exists, for example if you are a pilot you can't get a full pilot's licence to fly a plane in this country".

He added: "In some ways I'm incredibly lucky, I'm a white gay man in a very liberal open city, and so out of all of the groups of people I will probably fair one of the better".
