The 1st of December, World AIDS Day, is the day when individuals and organisations from around the world come together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic. 2008 marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day. Whilst we have come a long ways since 1988, there is still much more to be done.
The theme for this year’s World AIDS Day is “Leadership” under the slogan “Stop AIDS, Keep the Promise”. http://www.worldaidscampaign.org/en/Media2/Files/wad-theme-2 007-and-2008
World AIDS Day Commemorations 2008 www.worldaidsday.org.in is a participatory space, where organizers can directly provide details of the event they are organizing.To encourage commemorations in remote areas, the site has been designed to aggregate and display events even at the block level.
This initiative will help in:
-Learning from each other.
-Publicity, for greater participation.
-Providing opportunities for adding more value to the event and clubbing of activities for greater impact.
-Identifying areas of low activity to plan interventions and a bigger mobilization in future.
