World AIDS Day

2 12 2008

As you probably know by now, today is World AIDS Day.  There’s so many things I could talk about today – how governments discriminate against HIV-positive individuals, how homophobia jeopardizes healthcare, how numbers are inaccurate in many cases because risk categories are stigmatised, how AIDS funding by the US is linked to abstinence-only policies – but today you’ve already been inundated by words on this topic, so instead I’m going to share some pictures from my effort to commemorate the day.  If anyone wants the documents that are on the posters, since they’re hard to read in the pictures, let me know and I can e-mail them.

Thanks for posting this. I wonder would you be willing for me to copy the top photograph. The figures are startling in themselves. It would also be good to be able to use data expressed like this in my lectures on incidence and prevalence of disease. In a Catholic Uni I like to use examples that are relevant and that encourage a rights and justice approach.

Definitely! If you’d like, I will send you the individual Word documents of what’s on the posters, though they don’t have citations attached. Most of the information is from AVERT, but not all.

What a nice way to provide information about it. Not too much text (just the important bits), but plenty of images and BIG titles that were sure to draw the much-needed attention on this issue. Well done!
