World AIDS Day 1 December - Now more than ever
World AIDS Day is a time for us all to reflect on, unite and support our fellow Australian's living with HIV and commemorate those we have lost to AIDS.
Since 1988, the world comes together each year on 1 December with the aim to encourage people from all walks of life to be aware of and take action to reduce HIV. It is also a day which serves as an important reminder to encourage everyone to treat those living with HIV with respect and promote great inclusivity to work towards a WA community which is free from stigma and discrimination.
The theme for World AIDS Day 2020 is "Now More Than Ever". We know that 2020 hasn't been easy, with the global focus on a new pandemic, so more than ever, we need to remember the importance of World AIDS Day. World AIDS Day 2020 is a unique opportunity to:
- Come together, recognise and celebrate all that has been achieved for PLWHA.
- Educate others, continue supporting those living with HIV, and remember those lost to AIDS.
For this years World AIDS Day in Perth, WAAC will be hosting an activation made up of a diverse range of exciting activities at Yagan Square, in the heart of Perth. We would love to see you there:
Please register here at Eventbrite for World AIDS Day Breakfast: Get my World AIDS Day Breakfast Event Ticket!
If you can't make it to the breakfast, please register here on Facebook to keep World AIDS Day Yagan Square in your calendar! Come down and say Hi! We would love to see you! We will also have free & confidential testing on-site by members of our M-Clinic team.
The key to ending stigma and discrimination for people living with HIV is education and conversation. Without the funding and donations of everyday Australian’s towards HIV and AIDS support and research, the treatments available today may not have been possible. Every little bit does count, and here are some ways you can donate:
- Buy a Red Ribbon from WAAC at our Yagan Square World AIDS Day or anytime at WAAC.
- Make a donation from our web page here
Other ways you can add to the conversation on World AIDS Day is by hosting an HIV Facts Info talk at your workplace which WAAC can support you with. Contact us email@example.com to find out how.
Small conversations can lead to great change!
