The Stigma Challenge
Every year on December 1, the world celebrates World Aids Day. Unfortunately, this day goes unnoticed to many. Therefore, the Standing Committee On Reproductive Health and AIDS (SCORA) has begun organising ‘ The Stigma Challenge’. The purpose of this action is to break taboo and stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS. The stigma that patients with HIV carry along each day is partly caused by ignorance, but mainly because of the lack of accurate information in our society. Our aim is to change this.
The Stigma Challenge is a festival organised within several of our Local Committees. In this instructive and airy way we try to inform young people and to make it possible to make decisions about their body and health.
