This is my contribution to the Durex and MTV ‘Staying Alive’ #SomeoneLikeMe campaign for World Aids Day 2013. Join the conversation on Twitter @someonelikeme, @MTVStayingAlive or at http://www.someonelikeme.tv/
On a lighter note, I never thought I’d see the day where I would work ‘post-expose prophylaxis’ into a Miley Cyrus song.
On an even lighter note, I think Durex were paying people to create videos but I couldn’t find how to sign up so this one’s free for a great cause.
Stats: 1,000,000 in the US living with HIV, 50,000 diagnosis a year.
In Ireland: 362 people diagnosed every year or 1 person diagnosed every day. Up to 30% of people who are HIV-positive don’t know they are living with HIV.
Lastly, I am fully aware that I cannot sing. That is not the point of the video.
