I have been sitting on writing this for a number of weeks now. I believe it was during our first live episode of Season 3, #118, the Lost Episode, where we briefly brought up Prince Harry’s efforts in attacking HIV Stigma by visiting a clinic and getting a RAPID HIV TEST.
His intentions were honest and good, showing people how easy and accessible the testing is and why it is important for people to get tested and take charge of their sexual health.
We ourselves have talked about the importance of taking control and ownership of your health. Sexual, physical and mental alike. Yet, something didn’t sit right with me after hearing about Prince Harry and now recently with 2 men charged for allegedly not disclosing their HIV status in Canada has renewed the importance of writing this article.
