Communities for life!
To mark World AIDS Day (1 December), the International HIV/AIDS Alliance is holding an outdoor photography exhibition called Communities for life! showing the extraordinary things that ordinary people are doing to respond to HIV around the world.
Communities for life! will be held outdoors in Jubilee Square in front of Brighton’s award-winning Jubilee Library, and will be lit up at night. The exhibition will run from 23 November to 7 December.
Every day, nearly 12,000 people are newly infected with HIV across the world and 8,000 people die from HIV-related illnesses.
The Brighton-based International HIV/AIDS Alliance is supporting communities in over 30 developing countries to take action on HIV. We are also working to make sure that the UK and other governments fulfil the promises they have made on HIV – including the promise to ensure HIV prevention, treatment, care and support is available to all those who need it, whatever country they live in, by 2010.
The Alliance hopes that the exhibition will inspire people to play a part and respond to HIV too, by supporting communities to respond to HIV and by writing to the Prime Minister to demand that he keeps his promises and provides the money and leadership to stop HIV-related deaths.
The exhibition will also be available online on the Alliance’s website www.aidsalliance.org/exhibition from 23 November to 7 December.
