Lesotho PM Takes HIV Blood Test

The Lesotho Prime-Minister, Pakalitha Mosisili, has taken a blood test in a bid to encourage his country folks, as well as other leaders of SADC nations, to do the same. What good can possibly come from such an action? As he says himself, we must lift the stigma off the blasted illness in order to better fight it. I couldn't agree more. Although I could add the need for freely distributed condoms. Moreover, the more far-reaching our statistics, the better we can know where to hit (treatment), where to block (prevention), and so on.
