When it comes to the once deadly disease, HIV/AIDS, we can’t help but think, “We’ve come a long way, baby!” That being said, we know that there’s still a long way to go and many lessons to be learned from those who were there, on the frontlines, in the beginning. That’s why we’re so pleased to be working with AIDS Vancouver to celebrate their 30 years by launching The 30 30 Campaign.
We are also working hard to help plan AIDS Vancouver’s 30th birthday party! As a an organization at the forefront in serving the community—it was the first AIDS service organization in Canada—AIDS Vancouver is reflecting on the past 30 years by celebrating the stories of the individuals who have contributed to the HIV movement, remembering those who have died and celebrating our community heroes—including from community members, nurses, doctors, scientists, and to politicians.
At Be the Change Group, we’ve been hard at work developing the campaign, designing a comprehensive timeline of the history of HIV in British Columbia, Canada, and the world. We conducted and filmed interviews with 37 community leaders who have made such a difference in so many people’s lives. Ultimately, we hope to provide important historical information about one of the most serious health challenges of our time.
The first video will premiere on July 1, 2013 at 3030.AIDSVancouver.org, and a new video will be released on each of the following 30 days, so stay tuned and stay engaged.
Happy Birthday AIDS Vancouver!
