World AIDS Day is a right moment to create and to increase the awareness of people, especially young people on HIV and AIDS issue that is occurring around them. The idea of this Youth Against AIDS event is not merely to educate the youngsters, but also to entertain them with a fun and interesting things so that they are willing to come and to access the information and the HIV test provided during the event.
Youth Against AIDS was held in Lapangan Puputan Badung, Denpasar from afternoon till evening and was a free entry event for all people! We had a lot of activities during the event such as Poster Contest for Youth, Flash Mob Dance4Life where 250 young people were joined to dance with us (see the video here), and Youth Concert enlivened by many local stars like Magic Flame, Gung Dessy, DG Couzen, Diah Jomie and Yudis, Gita and Deden, The Rolic, Lawak Bondres Denok dkk, Sutha AFI, Nanoe Biroe, and many more. We also provided HIV and AIDS information booth, merchandise booth, playing booth, and also health services booth. Here people did a blood donor and HIV testing for free!
Bali Against AIDS is planning to make another Youth Against AIDS in the next year with a new and interesting concept and we will also invite more youth to get involved within this event. We thank all of the sponsors, visitors, guest stars and all young people who helped us in the Youth Against AIDS event! You guys made this happen! Thank you and much love for everyone!
