World AIDS Day was on December 1, so this post is rather overdue. I took the camera out hoping to see buses with big red ribbons, as I did last year.
No luck. But I did see these posters by a bus stop.
The 1st poster is an advertisement for AIDS tests, by the Centre for Disease Control. The slogans are:
- Take the initiative to get tested
- Reduce worry
- Control the spread
- Healthy life
The 2nd poster tells people that "using condoms greatly reduces the risk of contracting HIV through sex."
The main slogan is "Where there is safety, there is fun!"
There are some stats along the bottom. Including:
- In 2007, 56.9% of new HIV sufferers caught the disease through sex
- 0.5 million people don't know they are HIV+
- 70% of sufferers are aged between 20-39 years old
There was plenty of coverage on the TV. Here is a photo of a current affairs presenter on the news channel:
