Groups Win Red Ribbon Awards for Work on HIV/AIDS

August 23, 2006

At the closing of the 16th International AIDS Conference, five community groups received Red Ribbon Awards. The awards aim to recognize outstanding community leadership in creative and sustainable efforts to prevent HIV/AIDS and help those affected. The five programs were from Thailand (for providing access to care, treatment and support); Ukraine (for addressing stigma and discrimination related to HIV/AIDS); Zimbabwe (for addressing gender inequalities that fuel the epidemic); Bangladesh (for promoting prevention) and Zambia (for supporting AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children). The awards are a new joint initiative of the Community and Leadership Programs of the International AIDS Conference and are organized by the UN Development Program and UNAIDS.
