It helps to make them realise that having AIDS is not the end of the world. The latest news about discoveries and scientific tests being carried out in different parts of the world enables our users to know more about the disease. It helps them to connect better with people by realising that they still have hope and are still a part of this world.”
HIVAidsTribe also provides support by helping members connect with each other through HIV Aids blogs. Visitors can view blogs by clicking on the link and selecting certain details like mood, order, display mode etc. Any registered member can view and post comments on the existing blogs. They can also share their feelings with the rest of the members by creating new HIV Aids blog. This process of expression helps people to connect with one another by putting across their feelings in the form of blogs.
On using the blog as a method of HIV support, Mr. FitzGerald says, “Our blogs help create that sense of emotional security which makes people feel that they are not alone. Any user of HIVAidsTribe can check out the blogs written by our members. And if you wish to share your feelings with others, all you have to do is register with us. Also, if you only wish to read what other people write, you can simply do that by selecting what kind of blogs you want to read – and the website shall return the search of only such HIV Aids blogs that you ask for.”
