Candlelight Memorial 2019: Intensifying the fight for Health and Rights!

19 May 2019, is the 36th annual International AIDS Candlelight Memorial. The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial takes place every third Sunday of May around the world. The theme for 2019 is ”Intensifying the fight for Health and Rights.”

The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial, coordinated by the Global Network of People living with HIV is one of the world’s oldest and largest grassroots mobilization campaigns for HIV awareness in the world. Started in 1983, the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial takes place every third Sunday in May and is led by a coalition of some 1,200 community organizations in 115 countries.

The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial reminds us that those most affected by the HIV epidemic: including people living with HIV in all their diversity (women, men, young people, gay and other men who have sex with men, transgender people, sex workers, drug users, the poor, homeless and unstably housed, migrant and formerly or currently incarcerated people) need to continue to be at the forefront leading our movement for the right to life and the right to health. This includes fighting for universal, comprehensive and sustainable treatment, care and prevention services, and intensifying our work around human rights, stigma reduction, social and economic justice to ensure that no one is left behind.
