KAMPALA, UGANDA (ANS) -- Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom has shaken hands with a HIV patient in public for the first time, while touring an AIDS clinic during her state visit to Uganda.

According to the BBC, dozens of children and adults living with the virus were met by the monarch at treatment facilities established by the UK-based Evangelical AIDS charity Mildmay.

“The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh saw an out-patients clinic and a newly expanded children's hospital in Kampala,” said the BBC story. “The Queen described Mildmay's work in Uganda as ‘impressive.”
The Queen meets Steven and Grace Wakodo who are both HIV positive.
