AIDS Ribbon: Pin it!

1st December is widely celebrated as the World AIDS Day: to raise funds, awareness and support and acceptance of this killer disease and its sufferers.

On that particular day, I am supposed to attend a workshop right from early morning to late in the night. However, I have pledged my support to this cause and I will be blogging about it regularly here in order to show my support for the World AIDS Day celebrations. In order to do that, I have decided to go with the following series of posts, podcasts and vidcasts, which I hope to put up at different times throughout the month of December:

1. A short history of the World AIDS Day.

2. WAD Theme 2010: Part 1: Universal Access: Access to Drugs and Laboratories

3. WAD Theme 2010: PArt 2: Human Rights: The right to sexuality

4. WAD Theme 2010: Part 3: Human Rights: The right to safe working environment for commercial sex workers

5. WAD Theme 2010: Part 4: Human Rights: Child Trafficking

6. The HIV/AIDS Denialists and Their Impact

7. HIV and TB: An Unholy Alliance

8. Recounting memorable patients: Advanced AIDS, yet never giving up!

9. To protect the protectors: HIV and professional transmission: Safety for Health Professionals

10. 10 Things you can do to change the world for People Living With HIV/AIDS

The theme for the World AIDS Day for the past half decade has been: StopAIDS – Keep the Promise. This year, there is an added sub theme: Universal Access and Human Rights.

I am going to do my bit to spread awareness about this killer disease through my blog and my patient encounters. What are you going to do? Be the change you want  to see. Join in hands to make this world a safer and better place, make this world AIDS free!
