One woman deliberately seeks to infect others with the HIV AIDS virus and another asks for help with Stigma and Discrimination in the workplace. These were the subjects of the poetry shared by Eintou Springer at a recent Information and Testing fair hosted by the Ministry of the People and Social Development. The former Poet Laureate of Port of Spain dedicated her poetry to women and urged them to get tested and encourage their partners to do so as well.
The event took place on Saturday June 27th in the busy town of Sangre Grande and attracted members of the public who were interested in getting information about HIV AIDS and other health advice. It was organised by Aileen Clarke, Coordinator of the HIV Unit and her team of dedicated staff.
Over the past few months Eintou and the Idakeda team have supported a number of HIV AIDS initiatives such as the Candlelight Ceremony hosted by the National Aids Coordinating Committee (NACC) in honour of those who have struggled with the virus and performances of ‘Baby Doll Meets Midnight Robber' locally and internationally.
