This discussion was about HIV/AIDS in the Tibetan population in exile
and in Tibet; the social stigma faced by those with HIV/AIDS; common
misconceptions; causes and precautionary measures; the never to be
underestimated condoms; facilities available at local hospitals (public
and private) in Dharamsala and refugee settlements to get tested;
advances in the quest for a cure as well as a vaccine for HIV/AIDS; and
above all, the need for openness and community's acceptance (not
ostracization) of those with HIV/AIDS.
