Here is information and a link to resources/toolkit on the upcoming campaign:
Integrating World AIDS Day and 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence
The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign sponsored by the Center for Women's Global Leadership, and endorsed by the Global AIDS Alliance, Americans for Informed Democracy, and the Student Global AIDS Campaign. The campaign begins each year on November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and ends on December 10, International Human Rights Day, to highlight the fact that violence against women is a fundamental violation of human rights. World AIDS Day, December 1, falls during the campaign, providing activists an ideal opportunity to highlight the links between violence and HIV/AIDS.
GAA, in partnership with the Student Global AIDS Campaign and Americans for Informed Democracy, has produced an activist toolkit to help HIV/AIDS activists call attention to the role that violence against women and violence against children (VAW-VAC) plays in the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The toolkit can also be used by activists focused on VAW-VAC and the 16 Days campaign. It provides an overview of the 16 Days of Activism, the intersection of violence and HIV/AIDS, and a list of action ideas you can use on World AIDS Day and throughout the 16 Days.
