People should stop discriminating people living with HIV

Discrimination of anyone is naturally a bad thing and it must stop in the society. I have discovered that people living with HIV are being discriminated in in our community.
Every person has their rights and deserves equal treatment as other individuals in the society as they also have the right not to be discriminated.
Some people living with HIV in my community are afraid of disclosing their status and seek medication because of fear of discrimination. They suffer without accessing services which are otherwise available and hide in their shells of fear.
Promotion of individual human rights can lead to increased utilization of HIV testing, counseling as well as treatment and reduces HIV incidences particularly in our society.
