The West Africa AIDS Foundation in collaboration with the Accra Diamond Lions Club organized an HIV and AIDS Candle Night at Haatso,
in the Ga-East Municipal Assembly on 30th November, 2016 as part of activities to commemorate the 2016 World AIDS Day.
The event marked a significant role in remembering those who have died from HIV and AIDS. More so, the evening served as a reminder that HIV can have a huge impact on one’s life; hence if people
are living with HIV and are unaware, they are at a huge risk of passing the infection to sexual partners and to children if they are born to HIV positive mothers’
The World AIDS Day which falls on December 1 every year, is a day set aside globally to remember those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS as well as progress made in combating it.
