May 16: Turning Remembrance Into Action

Thu 6 May 2004 In: HIV

International AIDS Candlelight Memorial 2004 'Turning Remembrance Into Action' On Sunday 16 May, thousands of individuals in over 3000 communities in 85 countries will simultaneously participate in the world's largest and oldest annual grassroots HIV/AIDS event. The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial is designed to honour the memory of those lost to HIV/AIDS, show support for those living with HIV/AIDS, raise awareness of HIV/AIDS, and mobilise community involvement in the fight against HIV/AIDS. This year's theme: 'Turning Remembrance Into Action' Remember those who have been touched by HIV / AIDS and keeping those memories alive through collective action. We want to encourage communities to incorporate action-orientated activities that extend beyond Candlelight, to address issues such as prevention, care, treatment and education.
