WORLD AIDS DAY COMMEMORATION: PAINTING OUR COMMUNITY WALLS RED

WORLD AIDS DAY COMMEMORATION: PAINTING OUR COMMUNITY WALLS RED

The AIDS Foundation of South Africa (AFSA) joins the international community to observe and commemorate the 2019 World AIDS Day under the theme “Communities make the Difference” and to provide an opportunity to recognise the essential role that communities have played and continue to play in the AIDS response at the international, national and local levels.

Communities contribute to the AIDS response in many different ways. Their leadership and advocacy ensure that the response remains relevant and grounded, keeping people at the centre and leaving no one behind. Communities include peer educators, networks of people living with or affected by HIV community health workers, door-to-door service providers, civil society organizations and grass-roots activists.

AFSA would be commemorating this day at the INanda Township Mbambayi Area on the 4th December 2019 @12h:00 where a mural art will be painted with a key HIV prevention awareness message.

Communities including young people will be invited on this day where behaviour change messages will be shared and vast services will be provided including HIV testing and education, sports and condom demonstration.
