December 1st is World AIDS Day. The Wuppertaler AIDS-Hilfe informs about many events – even outside of the day.
December 1 has been used worldwide since 1988 to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS and to inform new generations about immune deficiency diseases. Of course, this day is also an expression of solidarity with the disabled and victims of the virus. Mayor Uwe Schneidewind (The Greens) is the patron of World AIDS Day in Wuppertal.
Traveling exhibition NOK 90,700
The focus of this year’s memorial day is the traveling exhibition “90,700 – Life with HIV. Different than you think.” November 24 to December 9 can be visited in the Elberfeld Municipal Library. The exhibition is a project in which disabled people talk about their everyday life and the reality of their life with the disease.
On World AIDS Day itself, a number of information events are taking place, starting with a joint breakfast on Simonstrasse. Memorial Day is set in a series of events that from November 16 to December 7 fold. You can find the complete program at aidshilfe-wuppertal.de. (Red)
