People With HIV/AIDS in Trinidad and Tobago Battle Against Discrimination

November 20, 2012

Speaking at a fundraising dinner held November 16 at the House of Angostura in Laventille, Dale Enoch, chairman of the Caribbean Action Resource (Care) declared that while there had been some progress in treatment and access to medication for those with HIV/AIDS living in Trinidad and Tobago, the battle against discrimination continues. Enoch went on to say that for the past 23 years Care has excelled in the areas of community outreach and nationwide education about safer sex, stigma, and discrimination against those who live with HIV/AIDS. The gathering included the Minister of State Rodger Samuel, and Enoch chastised Samuel for what Care views as the state's lethargic approach to initiatives such as the National HIV/AIDS Strategic Plan and the National Workplace Policy, which Care has contributed to.
