A special call from the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA)
The IFMSA would greatly appreciate support for its most recent efforts to increase awareness surrounding Youth and HIV/AIDS on World AIDS Day 2011, ‘Getting to Zero.’
This year the global community has committed to focusing on achieving three targets: ‘Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS-related deaths.’
Medical students all around the world have been gathering in past weeks on local, national and international levels to mark World AIDS Day by organising conferences, lectures, peer education training sessions, flash mobs, parties and concerts in order to spread awareness and knowledge about HIV/AIDS with one strong message - GET TO ZERO!
Please find below some promotional items that may be used to assist its efforts.
1. Promote their World AIDS Day Video: Medical Students Worldwide Getting to Zero.
2. Share their World AIDS Day Statement: Medical Students on Getting to Zero.
3. Share their World AIDS Day Posters: Medical Students on Getting to Zero (please email the contacts below)
If you require further information on any of the above messages, please contact Roopa Dhatt, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Ionut Marcel Cobec, email@example.com, with your interest and any requests. They can provide higher quality videos and poster images.
