AHF Marks World AIDS Day 2012 with Testing Events and Awareness Campaigns around the World
LOS ANGELES - (BUSINESS WIRE) - AIDS Healthcare Foundation has come to be a global leader in the fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic around the world. Opening new clinics and forging new partnerships in more and more countries every year, AHF currently works in nearly every region of the world, providing access to free HIV testing and treatment for those living with the virus, as well as distributing condoms to increase prevention efforts and educating people about HIV and proper condom use.
Be it an attempt at a Guinness World Record for most people tested in one day in AHF's newest partner country of Argentina, a rousing march and rally through Sierra Leone's capital city of Freetown, HIV debates held among students in Nigerian high schools, a multitude of HIV testing centers throughout Cambodian provinces, or simultaneous testing in 15 cities throughout the Ukraine, AHF is using World AIDS Day 2012 as a fulcrum around which the entire world can gather to make an impact on the spread of HIV/AIDS.
AHF is welcoming its newest partnering country with a major event: on November 30, AHF Argentina will support ten testing facilities throughout the city of Rosario in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for "Most People Tested for HIV in Multiple Venues in One City in One Day." The testing venues will all be open from 10 am - 6 pm, and - with 10,000 rapid tests mailed in from Mexico for the event - AHF Argentina is prepared to test an intended 5,000 people in that eight-hour period.
