RESOURCES FOR WORLD AIDS DAY
WORLD AIDS DAY 2021
Overcoming inequalities with Justice and Love - In the context of the ‘16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.
Pope Francis highlighted World AIDS Day, marked annually on 1 December, saying that “it is an important occasion to remember the many people affected by this virus, for many of whom in some parts of the world, access to essential treatment is unavailable.”
Advent takes us on a journey from hope to celebration. As with Advent, the journey of HIV can now be one of hope and celebration. There are new testing options, sensitive to one’s needs; treatment can be started immediately, and, with consistent adherence, will suppress the viral load to undetectable levels. Advent: A Time of Hope is a devotional resource with messages of hope and HIV information for each day of Advent.
WORLD AIDS DAY 2020
The New Choices. New Treatment. New Timing. New Hope are Guides for Muslim and Christian faith leaders and faith communities to bridge the gaps in HIV testing, treatment care and support for men and children. Each Guide offers basic information about HIV and it celebrates the good news about HIV for 2020 and beyond.
We are all encouraged to use and share these POSTERS on the latest testing options, the value and benefit of treatment, and on PrEP.
Simple and easy to use messages to promote HIV testing, treatment, care and support in our faith communities and beyond.
