UN offers tips for community groups to increase awareness of HIV/AIDS
The pamphlet, put out by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), provides tips for grassroots groups on how to organize public awareness campaigns to fight discrimination in the community. It also contains information on talking about HIV/AIDS and respecting freedom of thought and religion. A separate section deals with promoting equal access to drugs and medical treatment.
The brochure also provides international guidelines on HIV/AIDS and human rights, answers frequently asked questions about the disease, and details a number of successful community group experiences in different countries.
