The Caribbean HIV and AIDS Alliance (CHAA), St Lucia Office prepares to celebrate World AIDS Day with Key partners tomorrow, December 1st. The last three weeks of targeted HIV testing and sensitizations climaxes tomorrow. Activities will centre on the theme, “”Getting to zero: zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS related deaths”
Activities commence in Vieux Fort at 9am with an Anti-stigma and discrimination march and opening ceremony followed by a health fair in Beanfield until 3pm.
In the north, the health fair will begin at 1pm and end at 5pm with a candle light ceremony. Song, dance and drama performances will highlight issues surrounding the theme. HIV testing will be available at both venues.
CHAA commits to sustaining the HIV prevention sensitizations and supporting changes to safer sexual practices through the team of peer educators attached to the project.
