News / YEA Debate Club event on World AIDS Day in Skopje
On the initiative of Mila Mladenova, a medical student and Young European Ambassador (YEA) from North Macedonia, Europe House in Skopje organised a discussion on 1 December for World AIDS day. The aim of the discussion was to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, providing fact-based and practical information about the topic as well as helping to break the stigma about people living with HIV/AIDS.
Speakers included EU Ambassador to North Macedonia David Geer, doctors, and representatives of civil society, who all shared with the participants relevant information about HIV, AIDS, diagnosis, prevention, treatment, student activities and projects regarding HIV/AIDS, social work with HIV positive people, their challenges and needs and measures to be taken to improve the status of people living with HIV/AIDS.
World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and on 1 December each year since 1988, the world unites in the battle to end the AIDS epidemic. World AIDS Day offers the world the opportunity not just to mourn and honour those who have died from this disease, but also to raise awareness about the ongoing need for prevention and education, stigma reduction, and a greater understanding of how AIDS continues to affect public health across the globe.
