Getting to Zero on World AIDS Day – Michael Carchrie Campbell

Standard

Michael Carchrie Campbell, Chairman of the Northern Ireland Liberal Democrats has supported The HIV Support Centre‘s Getting to Zero campaign as part of the World AIDS Campaign on World AIDS Day.

I know that it is vital for everyone in Northern Ireland to be educated about HIV. It is a virus that affects us all here. With the figures released today by the Public Health Agency showing a 20% increase on diagnoses it is clear that the health minister and health department need to do more to ensure that we get to Zero New Diagnoses.

Those of us who are living in Northern Ireland with HIV have a strong support from The HIV Support Centre. I can truly say that without the support that I have received there, I would not be here today. Please support them and wear a red ribbon today.

Rob Anderson, Chairman of The HIV Support Centre said:

“Please show your support by wearing a Red Ribbon and get tested and get tested early. What’s 60 seconds out of your day? It could save your life and that of those you love.”

I ask that everyone considers his advice and follows it. Doing so will help us Get to Zero.
