It's the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day today. From clean needles to safe sex, the fight against AIDS has touched everyone's life. How has it affected yours?
From October of 2006 to June of this year, I worked as a secretary and Spanish-language interpreter for the HIV/AIDS program at my local health department. Part of my job as a secretary was assembling various general mailings concerning World AIDS day and other events geared towards AIDS awareness. So I guess HIV/AIDS has affected me in that way, since I don't have it and don't know anybody outside of the clients at the health department who does have it.
