Welcome to the World AIDS Day 2015 campaign

 LOGOS-OF-CAMPAGIN-2015_1

 

 

While there has been a significant and welcome improvement in treatment for HIV, concern remains regarding the numbers of newly diagnosed cases in Ireland. As of mid-November 2015, 411 new diagnoses of HIV have been reported by the HSE’s Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC).

WAD is a significant annual event in Ireland that helps to raise awareness about the many issues that present themselves for people living with HIV and those at risk of contracting HIV. In 2015, organisations from all over Ireland are working together to roll out a national co-ordinated campaign running for 5 days from Friday 27th of November until World AIDS Day on the 1st of December. The focus of World AIDS Day 2015 is Solidarity with all people living with HIV, both those who know they are living with HIV, and those who don’t.

The key messages of HIV Visibility, HIV Stigma, HIV Support and HIV Knowledge are being promoted through a social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter asking people to show their solidarity with people who are living with HIV. The Lord Mayor’s in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway are supporting the campaign by promoting the key messages of HIV Visibility, HIV Stigma, HIV Support and HIV Knowledge. Equally, city councils and local authorities are showing their solidarity by lighting up in red, prominent buildings in cities across the country. HIV organisations and sexual health services are supporting the campaign in many ways including organised events and activities that will run throughout the campaign and into December.

In what follows, we set out ways in which you can engage with the campaign and show your solidarity. Thank you!

Speaking Volumes – stories from people living with HIV Galway City Library – July 13 to 26

Galway Flyer p1

An exhibition with a difference will be on show at the Galway City Library during this month’s arts festival.

Speaking Volumes is a flexible, responsive, storytelling project, designed to give marginalised people living with HIV a voice, and it allows the public to hear their stories with the aim of increasing understanding and reducing stigma around HIV.

Joe McDonagh, manager of AIDS West, says Speaking Volumes  tells the stories of people who are living with HIV, around half of whom chose to use their real name and an identifiable picture of themselves, while the rest remained anonymous.
