On Monday 23 May and Friday 27 May, the Student HIV AIDS Resistance Campaign (SHARC) Society of Rhodes University, is hosting an HIV/AIDS test drive, offering free tests to all voluntary participants. And seeing as combating AIDS/HIV is one of the Millennium Development Goals, I thought it would be most appropriate to discuss this topic.

To re-cap this is the outline of the sixth MDG goal:

Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases

Target 6A: Have halted by 2015 and begun to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS

Target 6B: Achieve, by 2010, universal access to treatment for HIV/AIDS for all those who need it

Target 6C: Have halted by 2015 and begun to reverse the incidence of malaria and other major diseases

A friend of mine, Megan Evershed, is an Environmental Sciences student. She inspires me in so many ways because she is strong-willed and resilient in her fight for the greener side of life. She’s not just a hippie child who wants to chain herself to every tree being threatened with death-by-chainsaw. She is intelligent, logical and realistic in her arguments and for that, I stand by and support her cause.
