Annie Lennox Speaks Out On 20th World AIDS Day

Speaking on the 20th World AIDS Day, Annie Lennox echoed Nelson Mandela’s description of the spread of Aids in South Africa as ‘genocide’. “I would like to say that the stigma is dissipating, but I really don’t believe so,” the singer told BBC News. “The stigma has a tremendous hold, not only in Africa, but all around the world in actual fact, and I think that people have become complacent. We tend to still think of HIV as something to do with gay population you know. We think of it as something to do with the ’80s. In actual fact we really need to be looking at that now.” Watch the interview at
