The Keep Calm and Get Tested Campaign by YWCA of India for HIV/AIDS began as an initiative to get young people aware about HIV/AIDS and get themselves, their peer and community tested, to know their status and take appropriate action to ensure a long and healthy life.
The young members of our movement kick started the campaign in August 2015 at the YDEEPA Leaders Training and we wish to keep the momentum of the campaign going by getting every local association, every member of our movement to join hands in taking this forward by conducting workshops, sessions or programs in schools, colleges and other youth centers to help the youth receive accurate information regarding HIV/AIDS and prevent its spread by getting tested.
As 1st of December every year is observed as World AIDS Day, we request you to organize events or programs centered on this campaign and get as many people aware about HIV/AIDS, eradicate the myths and stigma surrounding it and encourage people, especially the young to get themselves tested for it.
Kindly send in your reports as per the format attached herewith, with details of the program conducted by you in your region to promote this campaign. It will be shared with the national office and on our official social media pages.
