Thread: Earlier we talked about #UequalsU: the fact that someone on effective treatment can’t pass on #HIV to sexual partners. So why are people still contracting it? #WAD2018 #KnowYourStatus
Well to be on effective treatment, you have to know you have HIV. So, the answer is actually pretty simple: new transmissions occur because people don’t know their status.
We also know that it’s easier to transmit #HIV in the first months after you contract it. The amount of virus in the body is really high when you first contract HIV, but tends to go down over the first year for most people, meaning that it becomes harder to transmit the virus.

The theme of #WorldAIDSDay this year is #KnowYourStatus - Which is good. However the reality in Ireland is, that due to lack of access, over capacity and underfunding, people who go to get a STI or #HIV test are frequently turned away.
Have you ever gone for an STI or HIV test and been turned away?
In 2017, @HIV_Ireland's testing services catered for 1,082 people. However, they had to turn away a further 384 people because they did not have the resources to provide a service to them. #KnowYourStatus #WAD2018

I remember World Aids Day, December 1st, 2010, because I stenciled red ribbons in the snow around #Dublin. #WAD2018 - Beautiful photos taken by @niallcarsonpa - Niall Carson/PA
2010 was also the year I entered Alternative Miss Ireland @alternativemiss - An annual ribald beauty pageant which raised money for services for people living with #HIV and Dublin Rape Crisis @DublinRCC - I did a tribute to the one and only #FreddieMercury - Uncanny right?

The sun is out in Dublin! I'm taking you all on a virtual #StreetArt tour over the next 2 hours. Follow this thread.
Here's a mural I did last year for a Samba Band School on Bow Lane West. Celebrating the work of Jonathan Swift. Inspired by Gulliver's Travels.
I don't know name of the artist, but I love the colours and stencil layering.
