Apologies for cross posting
Please take the time to fill in this brief
survey and distribute widely.
Im pleased to share this survey for your input into the next World AIDS Day
theme. Over the decades World AIDS Day has served to raise awareness about
the epidemic, honor those who have died, focus attention on issues that are
key to a successful response, and inspire positive action.
World AIDS Day challenges leaders and decision-makers to meet their
commitments, calling for accountability and leadership while highlighting
the barriers that still exist to achieving universal access.
We would very much appreciate your individual and organisational input into
this short survey (approximately 5 minutes) and your help in widely
disseminating this throughout your networks.

Early in 2009 Civil Society and UNAIDS came together ahead of World AIDS Day
to debate how amplify human rights as a core component of the global AIDS
response. Out of the consultation came the overarching slogan Universal
Access and Human Rights. To back it up the World AIDS Campaign and hundreds
of partners developed the World AIDS Day Campaign - "I Am" which stressed
how vital individual freedom and freedom from discrimination are. For World
AIDS Day in 2010 "Light for Rights" was developed - this moved the campaign
onto a new level where in addition to marches , concerts , social network
events , media reports, poster distribution and so on buildings and
landmarks such as the London Eye and Table Mountain in Cape Town were
illuminated. Now in 2011 we're looking to build on these successes.
The World AIDS Campaign media team recommends integrating UNAIDS 2011-2015
strategy calling for Zero New HIV Infections. Zero discrimination. Zero
AIDS related Deaths. with the human rights component . Perhaps, for
example the concept of light from 2010 and I Am from 2009 could be merged
with the concept of Zero to develop No More! No More - Broken Promises. No
More - Discrimination No More - Corruption. No More Patents and so on. We
are sure you have some great ideas to share.
For World AIDS Day to have maximum impact, the theme needs to be relevant to
a broad range of constituents, the general public and the media and the
messaging is translatable throughout the different regions of the world.
