Reports that a "womanising actor" with HIV has sent Hollywood into a panic are undoing years of work battling stigma surrounding the disease, campaigners have said.
The Sun's report, which did not name the man,- meanwhile confirmed to be Charlie Sheen- appeared on the newspaper’s front page today with the headline “Hollywood HIV panic” and has been picked up by numerous international media outlets.
“Hollywood was gripped with fear last night after a womanising A-list actor was diagnosed with HIV,” the story read, going on to discuss anonymous “high-profile sexual partners” who may be planning legal claims following the actor’s alleged diagnosis.
t appears to be the same story reported by Radar Online as a “bombshell world exclusive” earlier this month.
The website reported that the actor was undergoing treatment, naming drugs including one that prevents HIV transmission.

“We must face hard truths—if the current rate of new HIV infections continues, merely sustaining the major efforts we already have in place will not be enough to stop deaths from AIDS increasing within five years in many countries,” said Professor Peter Piot (pictured), Director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Co-Chair of the Commission, and lead author of the report. 

HIV/AIDS is one of the most important issues that need to be taken care of, since the virus continues to grow in what some people say an endless phenomena in countries such as Indonesia and India. 
Kiev is known for the numerous attacks against Lesbians, homosexuals, bisexuals and transgenders and that’s the reason why LGBT-activists and other participants want to walk the Pride March in Kiev tomorrow (June 6th).
