Sir Elton John calls for removal of Aids "stigma"
Sir Elton John has called upon people to remove the "stigma" that is attached to Aids.
The singer was speaking at World Aids Day in Sydney on December 1 and also put pressure on governments to keep funding the battle against the disease.
However he feels that by de-stigmatising Aids, the disease can become closer to being defeated. He said:
"We've got this disease really by the scruff of the neck. But we cannot loosen that grip we have on it. If governments start backing out and stop funding, then the epidemic will start to balloon again."
