Stories from Papua New Guinea

“If we are to unite in the response to HIV, we have to share our stories, acknowledge our differences and decide how we will respond as individuals and as a community,” said Kevin Miles of the Oil Search Foundation. A World AIDS Day (WAD) lunch and learn session at Oil Search’s Port Moresby office focused on sharing personal stories about the impact of HIV on our own lives.

World AIDS Day is one of the most globally recognised events of the year and observed on 1 December every year across the world. This day is dedicated to raise awareness about the issues surrounding HIV and AIDS, including the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection, groups at risk, stigma and discrimination, and the global challenge to get to zero new infection and AIDS related deaths by 2015.
