World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day is celebrated on December 1 each year around the world. It has become one of the most recognized international health days and a key opportunity to raise awareness, commemorate those who have passed on and celebrate victories such as increased access to treatment and prevention services. 

HAART has recognized World AIDS Day the past few years by hosting an HIV Awareness Poster Contest featuring designs from local art classes. Students are given a theme to guide their designs then HAART uploads their designs to our social media accounts with a link to online voting. This year 1,122 people voted! Thanks to our sponsor, Avita Pharmacy the two students with the winning poster designs were awarded $500 scholarships. The 2017 theme was stigma.
