i think the rally is a good idea,and i hop it brings about positive results.the battle against HIV/AIDS is taken to long.i dont no much about affected comunities in other parts of the globe,but in northern Nigeria HIV/AIDS has really affected the economies of infected comunities who are mostly farmers,side effects of ARTs and lack of nutrition leading to opportunistic infections almost always being the most reasons for reduction in production or no prodution at all.i think getting the right kind of ARTs to suite different individual body meterbolism would also go a long way in the fight.
