Announcing the First week of September 23 - 30, 2007 as awareness
week on HIV/Aids.
For the first time the SARCO (South Asia Research and Charitable
Organization) will be
conducting HIV/Aids Awareness campaigns throughout the week of
September 23 - 30, 2007 as
awareness week on HIV/Aids in South Asian countries. The Awareness
programs will be launched by
SARCO with the support of local and international governmental and
HIV/AIDS Awareness Week is designated to increase public awareness
to help reduce the impact
and spread of HIV/AIDS and, to improve the care and treatment of
those with HIV/AIDS.
HIV/AIDS remains a crisis in South Asian region. Many South Asians
do not know about the
disease. They do not even know they have HIV. The United Nations'
Joint Committee on HIV/AIDS
(UNAIDS) reports that the people and communities most affected by
HIV/AIDS are those with
limited access to fundamental social and economic rights. Fear of
disease, stigmatizing and
blaming others for the epidemic, and discriminating against those
they know or suspect to have
HIV make fertile ground for new cases of HIV. Stigma and
discrimination can also stop people
from seeking information about HIV or requesting an HIV test.
So what is the solution?
- Public education and compassion are essential if this epidemic is
to be stopped
With this in mind, SARCO has intended to educate the public through
public rallies and meetings,
If you are willing to collaborate in this noble cause, please
register your institution names
along with contact details or contact the SARCO Country Executive
Directors before December 30, 2006.
Your contributions will help to educate the South Asian public. Act
