This Friday the 30th of November is World Aids Day. 42% of Kiwis say they would feel uncomfortable eating food prepared by someone living with HIV, and 46% of New Zealanders would be uncomfortable letting their child play with a child living with HIV. That's a shame, disease is conquered by science, not by prejudice. The major aim of World AIDS Day for NZAF is to help end HIV stigma. That would help a lot in terms of getting the right things done - people getting tested, taking steps to prevent the spread of the disease, and eventually we can end HIV. The insurance industry has some way to go to help out - we could change policy wordings and cover HIV, as has been shown by AIA's recent changes to their medical policies.
