In four days, people all over the world will unite on World AIDS Day.  It's held on December first each year and people show their support in the fight against HIV.  Globally, an estimated 33 million people have HIV and it’s also a problem right here in the mid-south.  Although there has been much lead way made in the fight against the virus, statistics show, it's on the rise again and some more than others are at a higher risk of becoming infected.  Here to break things down are Dustin James, who is the Executive Director of the Mid-South AIDS Fund and Nikia Grayson. She's the Ministry Leader of the HIV-AIDS Ministry at Christ Missionary Baptist Church.
