・・・ #WorldMentalHealthDay: Too often, in sub-Saharan Africa, a time of joy during #pregnancy becomes a time of dread. A diagnosis of being #HIV-positive can feel like a death sentence.
Through those dark times, the support of a #MentorMother is invaluable. In addition to providing essential education about HIV, Mentor Mothers provide emotional and psychosocial support to mothers who face #stigma and #discrimination from their families and communities.
Every day, Mentor Mothers are providing health and hope to their clients and are sharing the courage to live positively.
Our hearts are with those who lost their lives, those who are injured and still fighting, and the families/friends affected by this horrific and senseless tragedy. Thoughts and prayers are always encouraged, but we must also take action to actualize positive change. Share this to help spread helpful information!

If you need emotional support, please contact our friends @trevorproject. #vegas#endgunviolence#stopterrorism#disarm
New #HIV infections are still increasing among #MSM ages 25-35, especially among #Latinx MSM
As we continue to process the #HIV pandemic and take actionable steps towards an #AIDSFree generation, we should be thankful for the amazing progress but mindful of the major challenges ahead. #nmghaad
We couldn't be prouder to announce @parisjackson as #ETAF's newest Ambassador. Reaching young people with HIV education is crucial for breaking down the unique stigma attached to this global health and social justice issue. We are so grateful for her willingness to use her platform and her voice to help advance our work. #GenEndIt : @samora_chapman

Today at #USCA2017, #ETAF hosted and moderated a panel discussion about normalizing #HIV testing, highlighting barriers such as the elusive and powerful force of stigma, but also shining light on what's working re: outreach, education, and willingness from medical providers and facilities to make HIV testing culturally competent and a routine part of health care. Thank you @repraulruizmd, @desertaids, @grassrootdc, @actagainstaids, #DrGottlieb, and #ETAF Ambassador @deondrebmoore for making this urgent topic meaningful and inspiring everybody has an HIV status!! #DoingIt
