Peace Corps To Mark World AIDS Day in Your Region

November 20, 2006

The spread of HIV has become a global issue that no one can ignore, claiming over 2.8 million lives last year, according to UNAIDS. The trust and relationships that Peace Corps Volunteers have earned in communities across the world have placed Volunteers in an important role in educating people about HIV/AIDS and encouraging them to get tested and seek counseling.

Over the next few weeks, Peace Corps will be hosting a series of events recognizing the important work that Peace Corps Volunteers are performing in the field of HIV/AIDS education and prevention. Last year, Peace Corps Volunteers working in HIV/AIDS helped almost 900,000 people across the globe. To learn more about their great work or how you can become a Volunteer, consider attending an event near you.
