The Conference and work shop

Day First:
what we do:
we Register, went for briefing and ice-breaking also movie marathon (Movie: Akhirat).
my Comment:
we get to rest a lot since we arrive early, the ice breaking is cool get to know my first group of friend from AMIST ( Boo, Nick, Prema, Yue Ni, and Christine) . The Movie was great Starring Vanida Imran, Tony Eusoff, Nabila, and Jins samsuddin. Combination of great actor and also real living issue = HIV and AIDS...... Great choice

Day Second:
What we do:
2 seminars (global view on HIV/AIDS and Stigma and discrimination), 1 Forum (HIV and Religion) and 2 Work shop run by Sahabat and Malaysian Aids Council People.
My Comment:
The stigma and discrimination in Kelantan for PLWHIV is quite serious and really eye opening and surprising session for me. (Speaker is from Prihatin)
I completely amaze by Kementerian Kesihatan negeri Kelantan dealing with the issue and how and what they provide to help easing the Issue.
An the Best things is they talk about the issue it self relating to Religion, i get most of the answer but although the Imam in Kelantan maybe already start to realize about the situation am afraid if the other state still not working together in order to fight together gain HIV.
The workshop was so cool they get people from Sahabat (if in johor we dealing with Intan Life zone) to run the workshop, we get to learn a lot there and especially the session is as interactive as i expected (AIESEC Way) .

Day Third:
What we do:
2 seminars (Harm reduction and woman & child living with HIV( PLWHIV), 1 Forum (A Hand to Lead, Aheart to care), Student presentation and Red Ribbon Charity Night
My Comment:
i have nothing to say but the speaker idea was ok. he presenting his idea how to deal with increasing number of PLWHIV. "In Malaysia the number of people infected with HIV virus is through sharing needles is the highest, to fight the spread of any kind sickness, the vector must be reduce or eliminate, since Malaysian that get infected by HIV mostly from sharing needles so the needles need to be encounter, by having a project like what Sahabat is dealing with (NSEP-Needle Sharing Exchange Program)".
The forum was really great. They invited this Maam infected by the Virus from the Husband(Associated with Prihatin), just great because she tell us how sad she was even when her second son killed because of the same reason the husband did and how she manage to survive. she make the whole plenary laughing and also crying because of her act and am really glad to know that she manage her self good. really inspiring and make me wonder at my self.
