SPORAH TESTING FOR HIV LIVE ON TV.

Its HIV Testing Week, and this week on Vox Africa TV we have a very special program about HIV in the UK. Today Sporah will be talking to a remarkable young woman who is changing the way the community sees those living with the disease.

80% of people infected with HIV get the virus from someone who didn't know their status.
Yesterday I did My HIV Test LIVE On TV... It was toooo much to take, but I wanted the world to see how easy and simple is nowadays to do HIV test. And I was very Happy to share my results with the world because I believe HIV is no longer a death penalty. 
All went well #ThankGod Special Thanks to Paida who motivate me to do so.


Meet PAIDA who is on a mission to simply educate the community about what is like to be a young person living with HIV.
She was born with HIV,  she was informed she was HIV positive when she was just 11 yrs old.
Paida decided to come out as HIV Positive on social media aged 16
Now she is a Mother to a health baby boy as seen on the picture.


In the UK one in five people who have HIV don’t know they have it. In 2012 almost half of those diagnosed were diagnosed late, meaning they have been living with the virus for at least four years. Late diagnosis can result in worse health outcomes, a decreased life expectancy and a greater chance of passing the virus on.
 People diagnosed late also have a ten-fold increased risk of death within one year of HIV diagnosis compared to those diagnosed promptly.


Getting tested for HIV means that, If you do have HIV, you can start your treatment before the infection damages your body and health.


Many, if not most, people with HIV go on to live normal lives; they do have to take medication every day, but most are able to do so without major side effects and without major disruptions in their lives. They go to school, they work, they play, and they have relationships. That’s not to say that there aren’t challenges, there are. But having HIV is not a death sentence and HIV doesn’t have to take over your life. If you get treatment and stay on it, you can have a productive and meaningful life that is centered on other things that matter to you


Stigma is the no 1 problem affecting HIV people in our community.
Stigma is a huge barrie for people when it comes to living with HIV, with dating, sex, workplace and family.
Some people when they hear that someone’s HIV positive - especially us Africans - they’ll be seeing someone who’s dying, someone who is not supposed to touch anyone.”
HIV is an infection which many people have fears, prejudices or negative attitudes about.
Stigma can result in people with HIV being insulted, rejected, gossiped about and excluded from social activities.
Fear of this happening can lead to people with HIV being nervous about telling others that they have HIV or avoiding contact with other people.
They may end up suffering in silence instead of getting the help they need.
Stigma can also result in people with HIV believing the things that other people say about HIV.
For example, they may think it’s true that HIV is a death sentence or that most people with HIV are immoral or irresponsible.



STIGMA OF TESTING
Fear if i get diagnose what will i do
People have being  shot by family
How did i get it?
Mean you've been sleeping around!
I am a married man/woman why should i test?
We just had a just few years ago! (Women getting tested because of pregnancy)
Lack of trust (Are you telling me that shouldn't trust my partner?)
Why Fixing it if its not


STIGMA ON HIV DISEASE
Sexual disease (Means that you've been sleeping around)
If you find out you will die
Some people view HIV-positive women and men as a threat. Many become isolated – within their homes, in public, at their workplaces.
They are further stigmatized by others' assumptions about their moral integrity – such as the belief that they became infected with HIV because they chose to take part in risky behaviours.

SELF STIGMA
Insecurity or discomfort with their status
Involve fear in dating, Disclose of it.
 Assume someone is going to discriminate or reject you because you have HIV

 FAITH AND HIV
Faith in People believes that we see God’s healing very much at work in our world today through the skill of doctors, health professionals, medical and Pharmacutical reasearch and through the blessing that people receive through those who are able to affirm and accept us as we areIt is vital that all human beings receive positive unconditional love and acceptance for their growth and wellbeing, all of us need to know we are accepted and valued just for whom we are whatever illness or disability we may or may not be living with not least those living with HIV. This belief underpins our work
Whatever our faith, if it is a religion or a trust in the people around us, it can be a great source of strength to us. If we are worried about something, including HIV, we can use that faith to help us through.· Feeling loved, hopeful and peaceful, can help us feel stronger and to cope better. Religion often helps people to have these feelings.
80% of people infected with HIV get the virus from someone who didn't know their status, get tested! #HIVTestingWeek #NHTW Let's end the stigma. Join the thousands of people across the nation getting tested for HIV Testing Week and get tested today:

The only way to find out if you have HIV is to have an HIV test..... There is life after HIV. #HIVTestingWeek

TOP 5 HAIR TYPES............ (100% Real Hair)



NDIAN HAIR.
11798418_10155887294495088_425857183_n
Indian virgin hair is one of the most common and widely available hair types on the market today. Since India has an enormous population, with a large number of women who donate their hair for religious purposes regularly, India produces much of the worlds best virgin hair extensions.
Indian virgin hair has a very fine density and has a light bouncy feel to it. This makes it easy to curl and style. With textures ranging from silky to coarse, Indian virgin hair is a great choice if you like hair that is versatile and flexible when it comes to styling. A great fit for all hair types, Indian hair is a consistent contender for the best hair available today. Indian hair is a popular choice because its texture and color are easily matched to many ethnicities, especially relaxed African American hair. Although it may become frizzy in moist temperature, quality Indian hair will be able to maintain its silky texture for months if well treated and cared for.




MALAYSIAN HAIR
tetsMalaysian hair is soaring in popularity and has become a hit among celebrities. Have you ever noticed that luxurious and sleek look of the stars? In many cases, that’s Malaysian hair at its best. Similar to Brazilian hair, the luster and shine of Malaysian hair is clear but not too sleek and oily looking. Great for holding curls, Malaysian hair can maintain curly and wavy styles without the need for additional products. Colors range from very dark to near black, with some lighter colors being less common, but just as beautiful. This hair blends extremely well with African American hair and is less likely to frizz up at the first sign of moisture or humidity. Since it is more rare and growing in popularity, expect to pay a little more for this amazingly beautiful hair. Given it’s versatility, luster and popularity, Malaysian hair surely deserves its place on the list of best virgin hair choices in the world.

PERUVIAN HAIR

Known as the best kept secret in the virgin hair market, Peruvian hair is a multipurpose and versatile hair choice. Not easily sourced, true virgin Peruvian hair can be hard to find, making it expensive at times. Extremely thick and beautifully dark, this hair can require less bundles to give a strong, full body look. Although it’s more coarse and thicker than Malaysian or Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair is as light as a feather. This hair is one of my favorites and blends well with multiple relaxed hair textures and ethnicities.




BRAZILIAN HAIR

Brazilian hair is one of the most sought after hair types in the world. How come? Well, its soft feel, durability and thickness make this one a guaranteed beauty. It is also not sourced from temples which makes the hair hard to come by. That scarcity drives the price up and makes this one of the most luxurious types of hair to have. Brazilian hair is also often really Indian hair extensions that are being passed off as Brazilian. Sometimes Virgin Brazilian hair has come to define a style of look rather than true Brazilian hair. The texture of true Brazilian hair blends will with all types of ethnicities from Caucasian to African American and will give a full body look straight out of the package. With a low to medium luster and natural density, Brazilian virgin hair will require less bundles to create a full look. Brazilian hair will hold a curl longer than Indian and Malaysian Hair and its also less likely to frizz up from moisture. An amazingly beautiful choice.


RUSSIAN HAIR

Russian hair is simply silky, glossy and gorgeous and is considered by many to be the best quality hair extensions ever. Sourced from small villages in Eastern Europe, this hair is rich with vitamins due to the diet and genetics of its donors. Extremely rare to find, Russian hair is highly regarded as some of the most beautiful and therefore, expensive hair in the world. Not always a perfect match for African American hair textures, Russian hair still maintains a wide range of colors and comes in light brown to medium brown and even dark brown colors. The likely hood of fraudulent dyed hair is high with this extremely rare selection. If well maintained, Russian hair can last up to 5 years while still maintaining its luster and silky texture.

NATIONAL HIV TESTING WEEK (NHTW) 2016


National HIV Testing Week (NHTW) 2016 will start on Saturday 19 November 2016.
NHTW 2016 will be the fifth annual testing week to promote HIV testing to gay and bisexual men and black African men and women.
WHY GET TESTED FOR HIV?
You should get tested if you’ve:
  • had sex without a condom
  • shared needles when injecting drugs
  • put yourself at risk of HIV in any other way or are worried you might have.
The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. A lot of people feel nervous about it, but the reasons to test far outweigh the reasons not to test. We look at the main reasons why you should get tested.

It’s quick and easy

Getting an HIV test is quick, easy and almost always free. It's also the only way to know for sure whether or not you have been infected and involves a quick saliva or blood test. 

It’s better to know

It's normal to feel worried about HIV. But why let yourself fear the unknown? Testing early for HIV can help put your mind at ease and reduce the anxiety of not knowing.

Whether your result is negative, or positive, it's always better to know so that you can move on with your life, or start treatment if necessary. And remember, your result may not be what you expect.

It can help you live a long and healthy life

If you do have HIV, being diagnosed at an early stage means that you have a better chance of living a long and healthy life. HIV attacks your immune system. If you're diagnosed early, you have a greater chance of protecting your immune system before it gets too weak and you get ill.  
With the right treatment and care, people living with HIV can expect to live as long as the average person, so it’s important to take control of your health by getting a test.

It means you can access treatment

Being diagnosed early also means you can get treatment earlier and help protect your current and future sexual partners. HIV treatment, called antiretroviral drugs, help to lower the levels of HIV in your body, meaning HIV cannot attack your immune system. Testing for HIV means that you can access treatment earlier – this will help you live a long and healthy life.

It supports healthy sexual relationships

Testing for HIV regularly means that you can look after the sexual health of you and your partner. If you're positive, you can prevent HIV from being transmitted to your partner by using condoms and by being on treatment.
