Plenty have changed since, HIV is no longer a terminal illness, and is a manageable chronic illness. Pop over to our knowledge base to learn something new.
Action for AIDS strongly believes that Singapore is well placed to end AIDS and to stop the transmission of HIV. This World AIDS Day join the fight to start the process.
We have made significant progress over the last 30 years, but the fight is not just about the virus. For the more than 7,000 people living with HIV/AIDS in Singapore, stigma and discrimination still limits opportunities, preventing us from living full, happy lives, including the opportunity for employment.
Despite efforts to mediate and educate, the organisation continues to receive complaints about unlawful termination based on a person’s HIV status. Therefore, a new emergency care fund will be launched to support persons who have been terminated unlawfully.
Here is how you can get involved
Volunteers are one of the most important resources for our organisation. They are the life of all our programmes, the heart and soul of our organisation. Without their dedication and hard work, nothing we do would be possible.
Anonymous HIV-testing enables early detection and treatment. Financial assistance provides help for those in need. Support groups and counselling help infected and affected individuals cope with HIV infection and close the gap between diagnosis and care.
Spread the word
Here is what you can do to end discrimination at your workplace
One of the first steps in a company’s response to HIV is to identify local resources. What sources of information, technical expertise, services, educational materials and supplies exist locally? What has been the experience of other companies? Who can help the company design and implement a program?
- Talk to a colleague in another company;
- Consult health and social services authorities;
- Consult the SNEF and their guidelines on managing HIV at the workplace;
- Talk to Action for AIDS, Singapore.
