Reducing The Stigma For HIV Positive People

New Zealand has launched the world’s first HIV Positive sperm bank so that those diagnosed with the virus have the ability to create life if they wish. The donors are men with an undetectable viral load, which means they cannot transmit the virus at all. A rather fitting story as World AIDS Day was marked yesterday, the 1st of December.
