Impact of Connecting Young People to PLWA:  Impact of Connecting Young People to PLWA I wish to share this poem with all countries. AIDS is not a disease, although the virus has killed millions. AIDS is not a set of statistics, although the numbers are horrific. AIDS is not a conference in Durban. AIDS is not a presidential PR problem. AIDS is not advertisements and education programmes, although these help. AIDS is a feeling of hopelessness and despair. AIDS is young people who believe they’re immortal. AIDS is a secret known by everyone. AIDS is not knowing what’ll happen to your children when you’re gone. AIDS is people who are part of families. AIDS is everyday life carrying on against the odds. ---a student from iEARN--Ukraine Contact Information:  Contact Information Cheryl Vince Whitman Senior Vice President Education Development Centre, Inc.
