With World AIDS Day coming up, we want to bring special attention to the local organization that serves Maui County in its efforts to promote sexual health and the well-being of our community members, the Maui AIDS Foundation.
World AIDS Day is multi-faceted in its purpose. It serves as a day of remembrance for the people we have lost to HIV/AIDS; it is a show of support for those currently living with HIV. It is a celebration of the advancements in medicine and technology that have significantly improved the longevity and quality of life of people with HIV. And also, it is a day of education and outreach to increase awareness on what HIV is and isn’t, how it continues to be a global health issue, how it can be prevented, and how people with HIV should be treated (that is, without prejudice, and as any other fellow human in our global community).
Maui AIDS Foundation is hosting a World AIDS Day celebration on Thursday, December 1 at the Vineyard Food Company in Wailuku at 5:30 pm. This year’s event will feature light pupus and beverages, live music, guest speakers, and a Ribbon Ceremony to honor our loved ones. This gathering of family, friends, and community members invites us to share knowledge and highlight the facts about HIV and the importance of protecting our sexual health. Get more info on the Dec 1 event at www.mauiaids.org.
