Featured Outreach – World AIDS Day 2018

WAAF observes 30th anniversary of WORLD AIDS DAY      

 

The first World AIDS Day was celebrated on 1st December, 1988. This goes to tell you how long the world has been fighting this epidemic and WAAF and IHCC have been in the front line for 20 years now. However, a lot still needs to be done and we appreciate the commitment of many as we hopefully start the last 12 years to ending AIDS. WAAF and IHCC were at various places during the 2018 world AIDS Day. First, some of our staff were  at the Madina Market in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana  with support from the MTN foundation to contribute to the first 90. Then some of us were in Ho in the Volta region of Ghana  to join the Ghana National World AIDS Day celebration. WAAF also  partnered Hope for Future Generations, Non State Actors Ghana with support from PEPFAR to conduct Education, HIV testing, TB screening, Breast Examination as well as Cervical Cancer screening. WAAFs branch offices in the western, Northern and Brong-Ahafo regions were also out celebrating and contributing towards the first 90 in the regions by providing HIV Testing and counseling services.
