Connecting local responses around the world
I was given the opportunity to work with a nurse who is presently HIV for the past two year now, her problem is to coming to grip with the reality of her status, however, after about three hour she was willing to open up and discuss her problem, and even informed me that her collages at the hospital is advising her to leave her profession and seek a next job.
However, I advised her that is not the right think to do, but however, she should educate herself more about her situation which will empower her to assist herself and even members of the nursing profession, where by they are all lack of the basic knowledge of this illness, moreover they are in the possession to help member of the public on the prevention and guide lines of HIV and its effect of the nation at large.
This event now tell me that we PLWHA are not working [doing] enough to combat stigma and discrimination in the Health System.
I know that my work is getting more harder to deal with.
