Action point


1 December was World Aids Day, and around the world a lot of attention is being paid to what we've achieved and where we're going in terms of infection rates, treatment and awareness.

This year the theme focuses on stigma, something that Charlie Sheen's news that he is HIV positive accentuated. Why did he hide it? Would any of us act the same way?
