World AIDS Day (WAD) 2009 marks the end of the first phase of The AIDS Consortium's two-year long stigma reduction campaign - the HEROES Campaign. This campaign has profiled prominent people and respected community figures it boasts the likes of Justice Edwin Cameron (constitutional court judge), Tender Mavundla (musician), Anne Leon (consultant), Paul Mokgethi (Reverend), Mettah Nyathi (traditional healer) - all of whom are openly living with HIV and are the chosen advocates for this phase of the campaign.
The 2009 World AIDS Day Stigma Summit brings together stakeholders from different sectors to actively participate and engage in the interrogation of the The HIV and AIDS Charter and how it applies to their different environments. The Charter is meant to educate the sectors on the rights of those living with HIV and AIDS.
