Raise Awareness {Mandela Day} 21 / 67 ways to change the world

As promised on Mandela Day 2013 (19.07.13), this is part of my series on their 67 suggested ways of changing the world. This one comes under the category of 'Help Out for Good Health':

21. Talk to your friends and family about HIV.

As previously mentioned, HIV and AIDS is rife in South Africa, so it is the disease at the forefront of South Africans' minds. You could equally spread/raise awareness about another illness or cause that you (or a loved one) suffer from or support by telling others about it. Raising awareness of an illness such as HIV/AIDS can save a life as it is also (but not by any means exclusively) a sexually transmitted disease and raising awareness of how it can be contracted in this way could and does save lives.
