WORLD AIDS DAY interview of Philip Emeagwali, December 1, 2006

Excerpts and quotes from the entire 30-minute interview:

The fight against AIDS, is the mother of all wars.

We think it wouldn't be us, that only others get AIDS. It's not who you are
that gets you infected with HIV.
It's unprotected sex that gets you infected.

Protect yourself. It's safe sex or no sex. It's thirty-minutes of pleasure and a lifetime of pain.

Every minute of every day a child dies from AIDS. Making us witness to a decimation
that is beyond the imagination of the most imaginative horror writer.

The HIV virus can infect or affect you.
Each and every one of us must take action
and get tested to stop the spread of AIDS.

The world is watching the AIDS crisis in Africa.

The HIV virus is claiming more lives
than wars; is a disease of mass destruction;

More Africans are dying from AIDS than from wars.

Stopping the spread of AIDS is everyone's
challenge.

The fight against AIDS,is the mother of all wars. Knowledge is our only defense. We must raise awareness. Protect ourselves.
Protect our partners. And get tested,
if we are worried. We think it wouldn't be us, that only others get AIDS. It's not who you are that gets you infected with HIV. It's unprotected sex that gets you infected.
Protect yourself. It's safe sex or no sex.
It's thirty-minutes of pleasure and a lifetime of pain.

Prevention today means protection tomorrow.
Millions of children are missing their teachers, caring for their dying mothers
and fathers.

Learning that you are HIV-positive is tough news. But when the going gets tough, the tough gets going. The limitations in your life are the ones you imposed upon ourself.
You have to make things happen, not just watch things happen. Protect your partner and seek treatment. Every minute of every day a child dies from AIDS. Making us
witness to a decimation that is beyond the imagination of the most imaginative
horror writer. The HIV virus can infect or
affect you. Each and every one of us
must take action and get tested to
stop the spread of AIDS. The HIV positive is a world citizen. The HIV virus
does not recognize the sovereignty of people or that of nations. Territorial boundaries are odd inventions of the human mind. The birds and animals, thank goodness, do not recognize our boundaries.
The earth is one country.
