RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCNC) – Actor Charlie Sheen made a stunning announcement on NBC’s Today Show Tuesday that he has HIV. In North Carolina, those familiar with the issue said there is “still a stigma” involved with the illness.
“There is still a stigma around HIV and AIDS,” said Lee Storrow of the N.C. Aids Action Network. “And we know that that stigma is something that keeps people out of care.
“That’s something that our organization and many activists are looking to address.”
