On World AIDS Day (1 December 2013), it is worth reminding ourselves of the World Council of Churches' Healthand Healing project, which supports the churches' work in this field, with particular emphasis on HIV/AIDS, mental health, and the promotion of reconciliation and the "healing of memories".
The Robin Hood Tax Campaign, to which Ekklesia is affiliated, works for the introduction of a Financial Transaction Tax. It also examines the difference an FTT could make in relation to poverty, the environment and challenges like the AIDS pandemic.
'Getting to Zero’ has been the theme of World AIDS Day on 1 December 20121, reflecting the international advocacy and policy priorities of achieving zero AIDS-related deaths and new HIV infections, and the elimination of stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV.
World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died.
World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December each year, is an important opportunity when governments, national AIDS programmes, faith organisations, community groups and individuals around the world focus attention on the global AIDS epidemic and emphasise the critical need for a committed, meaningful and sustained response.
