HIV/AIDS is a topic that is discussed very often and finds a very important place in the field of research. This disease has left a black mark and havoc on human mind. People have been making several attempts to educate common man about the Virus and its disease. Many campaigns have been organized place into place, and people are created responsive to the various effects of the virus. We should bear in mind that this virus has not solely physiological effects, but also major psychological effects. The Australian Federation of AIDS Organizations (AFAO) is an alliance that provides all queries related with HIV/AIDS nationally as well as internationally. Apart from the disease, a person suffering from HIV has to fight many problems such as society and its beliefs, accepting the disease fact, pressure etc. These problems together can make the patient weak mentally. At the time when he needs to stand his own situations, the conditions can break him down, lose his confidence and hope.
