World Aids Day 1 December 2008
"Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise" is this year’s theme with a special focus on "Leadership." UNESCO Beirut supports WAD events and activities in Lebanon and Egypt. This year the Stop AIDS, Keep the Promise campaign is being launched all over the world with focus on geographical areas that are most affected.
In Lebanon, under the overall coordination of UN Thematic Group on HIV and AIDS, the National AIDS Programme in close collaboration with UN agencies is organizing an information and sensitization campaign. This will include, among other activities, a Press Conference, Media Kit (posters, billboards calendars, magazines, TV and radio spots,) a one-day health exhibition and the creation of information stands in some of the most frequented commercial areas in Beirut in order to raise awareness on key HIV and AIDS-related issues.
