【China AIDS:5114】 不怕艾滋,却怕乙肝

小磊今年12岁,是一名艾滋病病毒携带者,他的家在河南的一个偏远农村。因为感染HIV,小磊成了他们当地的"异类",在他的家乡,他不能上学,更没有朋友。

年龄不大的小磊经常沉默不语,他知道自己跟别人的不一样,所以从来不埋怨别的小朋友不跟他玩,甚至学校不让他上学他也表示理解。

经人介绍,小磊来到了一个专门收留受艾滋病影响儿童的公益机构,在那里,没有人会歧视他,他可以像其他的孩子一样生活学习,跟家里不一样的是,他拥有了一大批的好朋友,他没有因为感染HIV而遭受歧视,甚至有些朋友跟他一样是HIV感染者,所以他很喜欢这里。

就这样,小磊在这个公益机构里快乐的生活着,他在这个机构支持的学校念到了三年级,小磊学习很努力,他希望自己通过学习改变自己的命运,并希望有一天能够读大学。

终于有一天,小磊的大学梦破碎了,导致他梦想破碎的,不是艾滋,而是乙肝。

这个公益机构为了保证所有的孩子能够健康成长,也希望感染HIV的孩子不再感染其他的疾病,于是让在这里生活的孩子都去检查了乙肝五项,而不幸的是,小磊除了感染艾滋病病毒之外,他还是乙肝病毒携带者,当结果出来的时候,小磊被这个机构的领导劝退回家了,领导告诉他说,等你的乙肝转阴了之后,拿着医院的证明,你就可以重新回来了,我们一样欢迎你。于是,小磊离开了这个公益机构,虽然他喜欢这里。

我们无法预知自己的人生,就像小磊无法预知自己回到家后的遭遇一样。他的妈妈说他整天都一个人呆在房间里,村子就这么大,所以的人都知道他有艾滋病,一出门别人就会躲着他。在房间里憋了几个月,小磊说他想上学,于是他的爸爸在当地为他找了学校,小磊也顺利的走进了教室。可没过几天,有大批的学生家长找到学校领导,威胁说如果小磊继续在学校读书,那么他们的孩子就退学。无奈,小磊只能离开学校。

小磊谁都没有埋怨,他经常沉默,有时候会自己悄悄的流泪。年幼的小磊遭遇了来着艾滋和乙肝的双重歧视,不知道他是否能承受这种歧视?

《艾滋病防治条例》规定:"任何单位和个人不得歧视艾滋病病毒感染者,艾滋病病人及其家属"、"艾滋病病人及其家属享有的婚姻、就业、就医,入学等合法权益受法律保护。"我们可以肯定的说,小磊的家乡所在的学校拒收小磊是违法的,而且是不人道的。

愿意接受小磊并给他提供读书机会的公益机构无疑是值得鼓励的,可是,这个公益机构因小磊感染乙肝而让其退学的行为却让我们感到伤心和可笑,我们都知道,乙肝病毒携带者不会给身边的人构成任何威胁,而且国家正在积极的出台相关的法律法规,禁止以各种理由让乙肝病毒携带者退学或者辞职。

《中华人民共和国传染病防治法》第16条规定:"国家和社会应当关心、帮助传染病病人、病原携带者和疑似传染病病人,使其得到及时救治。任何单位和个人不得歧视传染病病人、病原携带者和疑似传染病病人。

如果说当地的学校迫于各方压力让小磊退学让小磊遭受到了严重的打击,那么那所愿意收留小磊、后来却因为乙肝让小磊离开的公益机构无疑是把小磊推进了一个深渊。这个无知行为所带来的后果该由谁来承担呢?让小磊一个人吗?

【China AIDS:5111】 为爱知行只捐1元,让公益走的更有力(仅代表个人观点)

 1元钱也许微不足道,但1000万个1元钱,却可以挽救300名处于死亡边缘的艾滋病感染者,可以帮助弱势社群的整体发展,救助若干名在因疾病影响的儿童,帮助若干名弱势群体走进新生活。帮助一个在中国大地上,坚持16年,致力于公益事业的组织:只要我们只捐1元钱,积沙成丘,用于受艾滋病影响的群体。

  "对于我们很多人来说,1元钱只是很小的一个数目,只要我们,每年只捐1元来算,我想对于一个公益机构,在一年中就可以募集到更多的钱,这样不仅仅能够帮助自己完成一个公益的心愿,更能够使一个机构走的更远、更有力。能够使他们不在被边缘,使他们重获希望,不在因为没钱而病死于街头!

   北京爱知行研究所(工商注册名:北京知爱行信息咨询有限责任公司)设立专门帐户,接受中国大陆境内个人和企业单位的捐款。目前,接受中国大陆捐款的银行帐号信息如下:

开户银行名:中国光大银行北京阜成路支行

开户单位名:北京知爱行信息咨询有限责任公司

帐号:35110188000077191

相信你的眼睛,相信我们彼此对于公益理念的坚持,相信1元钱能够让我们走的更有力,请大家从现在开始,为了我们的成长,只捐献1元钱!

北京爱知行研究所所长或指定人员负责每个季度向社会公布捐款情况及资金使用情况。信息通过"爱知行动"网站(http://www.aizhi.net)、"爱知行动"邮件组(aizhi@yahoogroups.com)、"爱知行动"博客(http://blog.sina.com.cn/aizhixing)等发布。

【China AIDS:5112】 Fwd: 韩寒:人民群众强烈期盼出台《性生活规范条例》

韩寒:人民群众强烈期盼出台《性生活规范条例》

C&K新闻1月19讯在人民群众热烈拥护下,我国扫黄工作取得阶段性胜利。继浙江绍兴火车站派出所查获手机携带A片的违法分子后,各地查处手机涉黄荤短
信紧锣密鼓地进行。广东、上海、北京等地的移动公司,先后出台涉荤短信关键词设定,拦截了大量涉嫌淫秽低俗信息,极大地打击了淫秽低俗违法分子的嚣张气
焰。

据悉,在关键词截获的涉黄短信发信人中,经查供职单位包括:山东山阴毛皮厂,河南汤阴道路管道公司,海口交通局,宁波大巨乳品制造有限公司等单位。那些
被手机过滤词拦截的发信人纷纷指控他们单位名称低俗,害得他们对外发送单位名称信息时都被截获,造成手机被停,强烈要求他们单位积极向上,更改低俗的名
称。

据记者了解,那些名称低俗的单位都已经纷纷表示要痛改前非,海口交通局拟改名海口吃通局,宁波大巨乳品制造有限公司已经改名为宁波小小奶品制造有限公
司。而山东山阴毛皮厂与河南汤阴道路管道公司,因为单位低俗名称更改涉及所在县市改名问题。本拟定改阴为阳,但后来发现这次手机关键词拦截的发信人,还
包括洛阳锁具厂厂长,该厂长哭丧着脸对记者表示,都怪他心急,发单位名称信息时漏输入了一个"锁"字,造成如今手机被停,号码作废,懊悔万分。而那些正
在研究涉阴的县市,了解到这个信息后,一致认为改阴为阳照样可能低俗落后,所以还在研究万全之策,目前正处在不阴不阳的尴尬中。

对于现阶段取得的成果,人民群众不但欢欣鼓舞。他们还表示为巩固现阶段成果,还应该乘胜追击,针对社会上乱七八糟的群交换妻双飞等等淫秽行为,尽快出台
《性生活规范条例》。应该按照条例,成立性生活登记处,尽快建立做爱许可证制度。人民群众纷纷表示,这些年来不但已经习惯了持证结婚,持证怀孕,持证生
育等等持证上岗行为,所以更强烈地要持证做爱。人民群众希望不但把计划生育当作一项国策,也应该把计划做爱提高到同等高度。他们表示每一人民群众都应该
树立"持证做爱光荣,无证做爱可耻"的道德观。

人民群众认为,性生活登记处应该给每一个适龄女性提供一条贞节内裤,加配电子密码锁。要过性生活,必须提前24小时书面去登记处登记,该书面文件必须报
告时间、地点和性生活对象等内容,到时由性生活登记中心工作人员到场打开密码锁,过性生活时,由到场的工作人员场外监控,为更加保险起见,可以要求登记
人提供现场视频录像供事后检验,以检验性生活对象是否是事先书面申请的对象,如果一旦被证明登记人提供的视频资料涉嫌造假,以后登记人的性生活现场监控
录像必须由登记处安装,或者到登记处指定的房间进行,以利于登记处更好地监控检查。人民群众认为,登记处项目都应该有偿收费。

人民群众还提出,为防止登记人对登记处的工作人员进行收买,贞节内裤的电子密码锁之外,加挂一把机械锁,由两个登记处工作人员到场开锁,一个掌握电子密
码锁,一个掌握机械锁的钥匙,双重保险,相互监督,相似于银行金融机构的金库锁具管理办法。适龄女性纷纷表示,一条电子密码防盗贞节内裤,加挂大锁头,
我们的性生活将更加纯洁更加保险。

人民群众还提出,不能受资产阶级思想腐化,《性生活规范条例》还应该规范做爱姿势,不得进行69式,不得从事老汉推车,观音坐莲也必须严格禁止。人民群
众表示,应该严格按照周公制礼规定进行持证"敦伦",也就是西方的传教士式。人民群众还强烈期盼《性生活规范条例》应该规定,性生活登记处应该给每个适
龄男性人民群众颁发持"枪"证,适龄男性人民群众出门必须携带持"枪"证。没有持"枪"证,或者不携带持"枪"证出门的男性,一旦被发现,所携带的淫秽
低俗器具,一律应该被当作作案工具,给予没收。

以上新闻,全是扯淡,如有雷同,纯属见鬼

【China AIDS:5110】 LGBT youth award nominations are open

Colin Higgins Foundation Seeks Nominations for Youth Courage Awards

The Colin Higgins Foundation is accepting nominations for its annual Youth Courage Awards. Through these annual awards, the foundation salutes LGBTQ youth who demonstrate courage in the face of adversity and discrimination based on gender and/or sexual orientation.

In 2010, three honorees will each receive a $10,000 grant to be presented in New York City at the Trevor Project Benefit Gala in June. Honorees will also receive an expense-paid trip to the 2011 National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Creating Change Conference.

The award program seeks nominations of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, and Queer youth (through the age of 21) who have bravely stood up to hostility and intolerance based on their gender and/or sexual orientation and triumphed over bigotry through working for LGBTQ rights and social justice.

Nominees must be 21 or under and must be U.S. citizens. Self-nominations are not accepted.

Complete program guidelines and nomination forms are available at the foundation's Web site.

C2EA: Reviews & Previews


¿Habla usted C2EA? C2EA Puerto Rico is now up and running.

C2EA members from across the country have been very busy this Fall and it looks like there's no slowing down for World AIDS Day and beyond. Here are snapshots of some of the activities and organizing that has passed, ongoing and new C2EA advocacy network building, and previews of upcoming events.

Equality To End AIDS (E2EA); Hundreds of HIV & AIDS activists, allies, and loved ones huddled in the shadow of the White House on a chilly and damp Fall evening to demand leadership and urgency in the development of a national HIV & AIDS strategy and to reconnect the LGBT community to the larger HIV & AIDS activism.
Held during the weekend of the National Equality March, participants from all over the country and around the world danced, shouted, and swayed to powerful speakers and performers - many of whom are people living with HIV & AIDS - while remembering those before us, those passed, and urging those that will leads in ending this epidemic.


C2EA National Secretary and C2EA/Dallas member Marsha Jones looks on as Herbert Hodge opens the Dallas-area HIV & AIDS Community Discussion.

C2EA/ONAP HIV & AIDS Community Discussions; C2EA HIV & AIDS advocacy networks in Washington (NC), Dallas, Norfolk (VA), and Michigan, with collaboration from community partners and the Black AIDS Institute, have organized regional 'Community Discussions' to provide testimony to the White House Office of National HIV & AIDS Policy (ONAP). There has been great energy in creating venues that encourage participation and input from the grassroots community not on the original ONAP visitation schedule.
Most recently, dozens of women gathered in southeast Virginia to give testimony regarding women's and children's health issues and how those issues should be addressed within a comprehensive national HIV & AIDS strategy. On November 18, the Detroit metro area will host more than 100 participants from across the state of Michigan.

Building C2EA Advocacy Networks; Following in the footsteps of strong C2EA HIV & AIDS advocacy networks in Mississippi, Texas, and Virginia, new leaders have been emerging across the country as well as around the world.
Led by young activists Dy'ari Volumes, Carrie Rheingans, Ericka Florenciani, and veteran Roberto Archuleta, are developing networks respectively in New York City, Michigan, Puerto Rico, and Kansas City. Direct from participating as volunteer during the E2EA Rally & Vigil, C2EA Youth member is leading the new LGBTQQI Workgroup to tackle equality issues as it relates to HIV & AIDS.


People post their communities DEMANDS to be included in the national HIV & AIDS strategy on the C2EA booth at USCA in San Francisco.

World AIDS Day; From DC to San Francisco, C2EA members and allies will be marching and rallying with theme of 'Systems Failure' to define the current local, national, and global political and structural mechanisms that are charged with ending the HIV & AIDS pandemic.
Broken promise by President Obama on increasing global funding, lack of vision and leadership by city and state elected and appointed officials, mismanagement or misplacing of critical and life-saving funding and resources, among other things have led to an increase of infection rates, additional and unnecessary deaths, and a heightened urgency to develop and implement a comprehensive HIV & AIDS strategy on a levels.

C2EA at 5 Years; April 2010 marks the 5 year mark of The Campaign To End AIDS. People living with HIV & AIDS from every state and territory converged on DC in the Spring of '05 to 'Walk A Mile In My Shoes' and begin a journey whose only destination of ending the HIV & AIDS epidemic in this country and beyond.
Join the C2EA Outreach & Organizing Workgroup planning calls every other Monday afternoon at 2:30 est, using the toll-free number 1-866-394-9509, 9357895#. For more information on C2EA Workgroups or any events and activities occuring locally, regionally, or nationally, please contact info@campaigntoendaids.org.

Excitement Builds as 'Equality To End AIDS' Fast Approaches

EQUALITY TO END AIDS TO FEATURE PERFORMERS AND SPEAKERS LIVING WITH HIV

"Young LGBT people attending the National Equality March need to continue the fight against HIV/AIDS" says Cleve Jones.


Diagnosed in 1987, Singer/Entertainer Sherri Lewis will host the 'Equality To End AIDS' Rally & Vigil

As tens of thousands of LGBT Americans and their allies converge on Washington DC October 9-11 to march for equal rights, they also will remind the nation and the LGBTQ community that the HIV & AIDS epidemic is not over as well as remember the more than half a million Americans who have died from the disease.

The Equality To End AIDS rally and vigil will take place Saturday, October 10, the day before the massive Equality March. Equality To End AIDS will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 pm on the Ellipse, in front of the White House, and feature an inspiring roster of speakers and performers (mostly HIV+), culminating in a candlelight vigil.

"The weekend is about achieving full equality for LGBT Americans. We need to use that political power to remind the country that the AIDS epidemic continues. A great many young people will attend the march; we need them to continue the fight against HIV/AIDS," said Cleve Jones, the founder of the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt and one of the National Equality March organizers.

Gay and bisexual men are now 50 times more likely to acquire HIV than those any other group. Among young gay men, HIV infections increased an astonishing 12% each year from 2001 to 2006; the only demographic group to see an increase in infections during that period. Even though treatments have extended life for many people with HIV, recent research indicates that, on average, people with HIV live 21 years less than their HIV-negative counterparts.

"Many of our most energized LGBT activists are too young to remember the devastating impact AIDS has had on the gay community. We must re-engage the larger LGBT community in AIDS activism," said Charles King, President and CEO of Housing Works, which is the fiscal sponsor of the rally and vigil. "Ending the HIV pandemic is an issue of justice that must be their fight as well."

Speakers and entertainers at the rally will include singer/actress Sherri Lewis, former Miss America Kate Shindle, members of the Diva League (as seen on America's Got Talent) on and Inner Light Ministries Choir, San Francisco Human Rights Commission Chairperson Cecilia Chung, Shawn Decker's Synthetic Division, poet Brandon Plain, gospel rap artist Desencé, singer/songwriter Dudley Sanders, POZ Magazine founder Sean Strub, Rev. Elder Nancy Wilson, Bishop Rainey Cheeks and DJ Stone. Many of the speakers and performers are people living with HIV.

Who's who?: The Campaign to End AIDS in collaboration with Housing Works, Broadway Cares/Equity Fight AIDS, Westminster Presbyterian Church, More Light Presbyterians, OD/More Light Presbyterians, AIDS Action, The Human Rights Campaign; The Afiya Center, D.C.

Shepherd tends HIV/AIDS flock

Counselor, diagnosed with disease, speaks from her experiences


Elizabeth Lancaster speaks to Washington (NC) community while Jeff Crowley, Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, and Christine Campbell, Vice President for National Advocacy & Organizing with Housing Works, take notes.

By GREG KATSKI Community Editor
(Published: Friday, September 4, 2009 2:20 AM EDT, Washington Daily News)

When Elizabeth Shepherd was diagnosed with HIV in 1997, she thought her life was over. Little did she know her life, or at least a new chapter in it, was just beginning.

Twelve years later, Shepherd is the HIV/AIDS health educator for Metropolitan Community Health Services. Recently, she coordinated a town hall-style meeting at Metropolitan AME Zion Church that welcomed HIV/AIDS carriers and advocates from 11 counties in the region. On-hand at the meeting was Jeff Crowley, the director of the White House's Office of National AIDS Policy.

Shepherd has made it her mission to see that people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and living in eastern North Carolina's rural counties get the proper care they need through education and action. She said area services provided to those stricken with the disease are minimal.

"HIV is a pandemic out here in the rural areas, because they (carriers) don't have the services, don't have the transportation," she said.

Shepherd said she has helped people in Belhaven, Pantego and Aurora get to Greenville where they receive the care they need. Several of them are patients at Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

Shepherd is looking to further her mission by striving for bachelor-of-science degree in community health education and promotion at East Carolina University. She is set to graduate next spring.

Shepherd, 50, has taken a long and, often, tumultuous road to being a HIV/AIDS advocate.

She grew up in northern Illinois, moved with her family to Alaska as a child, then, when she was in her mid-30s, to Charleston, S.C., to be with her ailing grandmother.

On a normal, quiet evening in Charleston, Shepherd said, she was jumped by several men in a back alley near the College of Charleston's campus. The men raped her, then beat her with 2-by-4 pieces of lumber.

"They were screaming at me, 'We're going to kill you because some white girl gave us AIDS,'" Shepherd said.

The next thing, Shepherd recalled, she was riding in an ambulance to a hospital.

"They beat me down until I was left for dead," she said. "All the bones in my body were broken. I was ripped up real bad."

Shepherd said she was the hospital in a full-body cast for more than four months. After checking out of the hospital, she began to rehabilitate and relearn basic motor skills. Things were looking up until she was diagnosed with HIV almost a year after the attack.

"I just knew then that my life was over," she said. "My life was never going to be the same — if I lived."

Shepherd said she was disowned by her family and shunned by her friends. Alone, scared and helpless, she didn't know where to turn.

"I didn't have a clue. I didn't know what HIV was. I just knew that people died from it," she said.

Shepherd said that, by the grace of God, a married couple and pastors at Shepherd's church took her in. The pastors, Michelle and Floyd Dotter, remain her best friends.

With a place to stay and food to eat, Shepherd had time to think about her future. She realized that with so much bottled-up anger and a newly found drug problem, she needed to go to rehabilitation.

Shepherd checked herself into a 12-month drug and alcohol program, Charleston County Adult Drug Court. During the program, she was treated by counselor Ricky Dennis, who was also a pastor at Charleston's AME Zion Church.

"He basically is the one that opened my heart and transformed my mind," Shepherd said.

She graduated from the program in 2002, and she decided it was time to go back to school. She went to Trident Technical College in Charleston for two years before transferring to the University of South Carolina. Living in Columbia, S.C., she began to work as an HIV/AIDS counselor, consoling young women who felt like she once did — lost, scared, lonely. At a counseling conference, Shepherd met the man she calls the love of her life, Scott Shepherd. Elizabeth and Scott, who is HIV negative, dated long distance before Elizabeth moved to Greenville to live with Scott two years ago. The two got married last year and moved to Washington.

Shepherd, who is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society at ECU, said she was called to Washington by God.

"I think this is an awesome opportunity that I accidentally walked into," she said. "There is a huge need around here (for HIV/AIDS services)."

FIGHT FOR FUNDING: AIDS CUTS KILL!

Youth activists sound the alarm on the impact of proposed budget cuts


Outreach Leader Devin Escobar passing out fliers in the Castro.

SAN FRANSISCO, CA (June 26, 2009) – The Campaign to End AIDS Youth Action Institute in conjunction with the Iris Center, are hosting a public informational demonstration today, June 26th at the Plaza located in Castro District. The purpose of the event is designed to speak out against proposed budget cuts scheduled to eliminate crucial HIV prevention and services for San Francisco and Bay area residents. At this event, young HIV & AIDS activists from across the country and around the world will educate the community and disperse pamphlets outlining the impact of the cuts and ways to contact local key decision makers in the allocation process.

These cuts will impact important services such as case management, housing services, and medication assistance for those living with HIV in the Bay area community. Additionally, these cuts will impact an array of essential programs such as mental health counseling, drug and alcohol recovery, child care and counseling services of those who are HIV negative or positive.

Specifically, the Iris Center (www.iriscenter.org) provides essential resources to women of color who would immensely be afflicted if these proposed cuts would occur. These vital, low costs health care programs would be drastically limited leaving few alternatives for these underserved individuals. The proposed cuts will disproportionately affect women of color and the target population relying on these resources and services.

About IRIS Center

Founded in 1977, the mission of the IRIS Center is to provide high-quality prevention, education, and behavioral health services to uninsured/underinsured women and their families living in underserved communities. The Center reaches more than 7,000 high-risk women each year through its various prevention and treatment programs. The IRIS Center is the only provider of its kind for women of color in San Francisco. For more information about the IRIS Center visit www.iriscenter.org.

益仁平中心参加在美国伯克利大学的青年行动研习

北京益仁平中心  200971

 

2009622-27日,北京益仁平中心受运动结束艾滋病组织(The Campaign to End AIDS 邀请,派员参加了于美国加利福尼亚州伯克利大学召开的青年行动研习(Youth Action Institute)。

来自各地的青年艾滋病积极分子在五天中就艾滋病历史、艾滋病青年运动、LGBTQQI、政策倡导、领导力和组织建设、社会媒体网络2.0技术应用、资金募集、直接行动等方面接受学习和实践。

在整个过程中,我们深切的感受到青年作为艾滋病运动的一只独特力量在倡导和组织方面的力量,我们不需要等待和观望,我们需要的是立马行动,投入到抗议和重建中来!

其中特别以来Housing WorksCEOCharles King以《We Are the Ones We've Been Waiting For: AIDS Advocacy In the Obama Era》和《Politics: How a Bill Becomes Law》,来自Health GAPKaytee以《Bird-dogging, Policy & Lobbing

在主办方的指导下,青年们根据旧金山目前的艾滋病政策自编自导了一次行动,这是为了抗议旧金山市政府准备削减AIDS预算的行动!并于2009626在旧金山市Mission Plaza集会,开展抗议行动!口号是:

Lower Budget, Hard Life, HIV, We will fight!

We won't stand for this-----AIDS Cuts Kill!

What do we want? Money for AIDS! When do we want it? Now!

Black, White, Gay, Straight, AIDS doesn't discriminate

此外,青年们还走访了奥克兰青年发展中心、奥克兰东湾艾滋病项目(AIDS Project East Bay 旧金山Iris 中心,旧金山LGBT社区中心等组织。

我们利用各种机会向参与者介绍了中国艾滋病和人权状况,中国艾滋病非政府组织、全球基金在中国的发展和促进情况,以及遇到问题,其中包括CDC和政府退休官员严重干扰中国公民社会,挟持国际援助资金瓦解分化非政府组织等问题。

本次活动,让我们看到了更深层次的希望,凝聚在遏制艾滋病运动中的世界青年,基于人类健康的最原始动力,在向一切的歧视、不公和漠视投入铿锵的战斗!当那些美国的青年们声泪俱下地抨击美国政府艾滋病政策的不力,官僚腐败导致HIV检测在费用投入和隐私方面得不到保障,以及当前情况下一些政府的艾滋病资金预算削减等,还有他们对于艾滋病工作的热忱和出于人道主义精神对美国乃至世界各地受艾滋病肆虐及其影响的人的关心和投入,让我们再一次体验到人的价值、自由的珍贵!
