Today (or rather tonight) we celebrate the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial. It’s not just about lighting with a candle; it’s a about raising awareness about AIDS in the World and Mauritius.
For too long in Mauritius we have adopted an ostrich policy and despite all the talk sexual education is still not yet in our schools (the syringe exchange programme is however an excellent initiative); it’s still taboo – but the exchange of pornographic clips is not!!! We’ve broken many barriers and there are still a lot more in the way.
Special hats’ off to PILS and their continuing effort to inform people about AIDS in Mauritius.
