Putting your foot down

As young people account for almost 45% of all new HIV infections and an estimated 5.5 million young people currently live with HIV, here is an issue that all young people can and should be concerned about. Global leaders have promised universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support by 2010 and young people can take the lead to make sure this promise becomes a reality. You can join the World Aids Campaign that campaigns to hold world leaders accountable to their promises on HIV and AIDS.

You can also encourage your school to mark World Aids Day with a series of events and activities. On this day, held in December each year, people from around the world unite to raise awareness and show commitment to “Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise.” It is the perfect opportunity for young people to join together to organise activities that draw attention to the needs of other young people around the world.

HIV/AIDS is of course just one health area where you can put your foot down for change, but it is a crucial one that affects millions of young people and children in the world today, either directly or because someone they know or love has HIV/AIDS.
