An Oxfam HIV/ AIDS awareness event

Young people continue to bear the brunt of the global HIV/AIDS epidemic, with youth under age 25 accounting for more than half of all new HIV infections each year. Those between the ages of 15-24 are particularly hard hit, especially girls and young women who comprise the majority of young people living with the disease.

Young people face particular vulnerabilities that put them uniquely at risk for HIV, but they are also critical to the response to the epidemic; where HIV transmission has been reduced, the greatest reductions are often seen among young people.

By giving the gift of an HIV/AIDS awareness event through Oxfam, you can help to stem the HIV/ AIDS pandemic. This gift is a powerful gift. It turns into lively events, workshops, public meetings and even theatrical productions with music and singing. It creates knowledge and understanding about HIV/AIDS. It saves lives. Give this gift and Oxfam will spread the word, not the disease.

Give the gift of an HIV/AIDS awareness event through Oxfam. Visit the Oxfam Unwrapped charity gifts scheme. It can all be done quickly and easily online - just visit the Oxfam Unwrapped website for more details.
