The World AIDS Conference is back in Durban South Africa after 16 years. At the World AIDS Conference 2000 themed “Breaking the Silence” a young frail looking boy who had fought a long battle with HIV named Nkosi Johnson spoke at the Conference echoing the words “Please help people with HIV love them, care for them support them”.
And this, believe it or not were the words that got Champions For Life starting in 2005. A lot has changed since 2001. Treatment is now available for all, governments all over the world are implementing ‘test and treat’, an HIV vaccine is on the Horizon and most importantly, the possibility of an HIV free future is now far much more realistic than it was a decade and half ago.
Champions For Life’s presence will be felt at this global event as we showcase how we have provided Love, care and support to over 15 000 adolescents living with HIV in the 11 countries we operate in through our Faith Based Psycho-Social support program.
This year, the World AIDS Conference is running under the theme “Accessing EQUITY rights now” and as Champions for Life, we are helping Adolescents living with HIV access equity rights now.
Come join us in Durban at the World AIDS Conference at our NGO Booth (number 517) and Booth 115 in the Pharmaceutical Exhibition hall. Also Pen in your Calender’s Tuesday 19 July 13:30 at the Global Village Main Stage for our performance “Weeping Shadows”.
