- awareness campaign – making sure people understand exactly what it can do to them

- get the country (e.g. South Africa) to admit that there is a problem, so that they can move forward to finding a solution

- make the drugs that help the disease cheaper and more available to everyone

- make people understand, so that it can be de-stigmatised and a way forward can be found

- make sure that people understand before it is too late - stop acting as though the subject is something we can't talk about

- make people feel as though they can get advice from centres that are established

6) What could be done by your peers to make you interested in and involved in global issues?
