HIV/AIDS: Physician Cautions Against Stigmatisation


The Chief Medical Director, General Hospital in Ore, Ondo State, Akinyele Semudara, has cautioned against the stigmatisation of people living with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).

Semudara, who made this appeal while in Ore on Wednesday, warned that stigmatisation could kill faster than AIDS. He said that the victims of the virus should be loved by their family members and people living around them so as to give them the courage to overcome the challenge.

The medical doctor also advised residents of the state to take advantage of the free HIV screening in general hospitals to know their status.
