A day in the world of AIDS

, : A day in the world of AIDS. Sidahora 21-22

World AIDS Day, celebrated on December 1, was designed to create global consciousness about the magnitude of the epidemic, and the issues and problems those affected face every day. In New York City, various community agencies united to send a message to Mayor Guliani. The message was that, for those living with AIDS, a cut in funding is not a question of quality of life, but of life or death. AIDS sufferers are humans who are loved and respected. The names of thousands of victims of AIDS were read for seventeen consecutive hours. A moving experience, it spoke of the illness's reach and the need to unite to combat it. Activists who were present and who lent support and encouragement to AIDS victims are mentioned, and the importance and magnitude of work still needed to be done are stressed.
