We have everything to beat most infectious diseases. Still they kill millions of people every year. Why?
New medicines may beat the rising drug resistance and offer even more effective treatments, but that won't matter if people feel the need to hide their disease. So our main enemy is STIGMA.
Stigma is in the mind; it is a mentality, which is very hard to change.
It may be scary, but if we want to change it, we need to face the truth.
