World Aids Day in Greece

As every single year, at the 1st of December HelMSIC took action for World AIDS Day 2012!

Participating in UNAIDS’s campaign, our slogan, our goal was Getting to Zero. Knowing that the only way to prevention is through education, this year in Greece we adressed mainly the youth, encouraging them to be cautious regarding their own sexual health and their sexual partners’ as well and stay safe. We also addressed people in the subjects of stigma and discrimination.

Athens, Alexandroupolis, Irakleion, Thessaloniki, Ioannina, Larisa and Patra were the 7 cities, where peer education seminars, workshops and street actions where held in puncto HIV/ AIDS. The street actions with red candles, red ribbons, red balloons and lots of enthusiastic SCORAngels where held in central spots and squares of all cities, with informative leaflets and free condom distribution.

Here you can see photos of our actions. Enjoy!!
