I was excited when I listened passionately to how the policy makers deliberated on issues and also listened to what people had to contribute to the Bill on the HIV/AIDS Anti Stigmatization and discrimination bill at the National Assembly. The essence of the public hearing was to analyze the content of the Anti-Stigma Bill and to make specific recommendations that will cover a wider group of people living with and effected by HIV in Nigeria.
