World Aids Day

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Nelson Mandela
Today is World Aids Day. It is a day to remember those lost to this disease, those who are suffering and those who are working to end it. The World AIDS Campaign Global Steering Committee Chair Allyson Leacock said recently, "This World AIDS Day, the universal access and human rights theme is about us, about communities, about people like you and me and our governments making a commitment to honor and respect the dignity of the vulnerable and to those already living with HIV." Visit the website worldaidscampaign.org for more information on how you can be involved.
