Today’s Site of the Day is the World AIDS Day campaign site. The World AIDS Campaign (WAC) has been established to support, strengthen and connect campaigns that hold leaders accountable for their promises on HIV and AIDS. The site includes a number of media resources particularly useful for educators and journalists covering World AIDS Day, marked on December 1 each year since 1988.
To correspond with the 2008 theme of leadership, the Taking the Lead Forum on myglobalfund.org is asking its members the following question: What do you commit to do to ensure that you, your community, or country leads, empowers and delivers in the fight against AIDS over the next 12 months? A range of postcards and posters is available for download from the World AIDS Day Resources page, in English, Spanish, French, Russian and German.
