Speaking on the occasion Dr.P.Kuganantham said AIDS is not a killer disease; AIDS is a chronic aliment like diabetes and hypertension.  We need to keep up the same spirit of reducing stigma and discrimination against HIV/AIDS. The social financial and medical support for the affected needs to be consolidated from all agencies willing to support the cause.The NGOs and the agencies who are working hard to end this human suffering for the past 3 decades have to be encouraged and supported for future care and support of HIV/AIDS. Let's end the inequalities and end AIDS.

Speaking on the occasion Dr.M.Janakiram said we must identify the inequalities that largely determine who has access to HIV services that meet their needs, who is experiencing HIV transmission and who is dying. Then we must adapt the AIDS response to prioritize programmes, laws, policies and services that will best empower those still being left behind and eliminate  those inequalities.

Speaking on the occasion Ms.L.S.Suga Priyanka said HIV remains a major public health issue that affects millions of people worldwide. Creating awareness provides an opportunity to educate communities around the world about the importance of HIV prevention. MSW Students eagerly participated in Face painting, Charts and Posters creation on the theme: End Inequalities; End AIDS. The students had a very informative session regarding HIV/AIDS. We thank ICWO for organizing this event.
