International AIDS Candlelight Memorial

Let’s keep the light on HIV is the theme of this year’s International Candlelight Memorial. The theme speaks to the urgent need to ensure that HIV and AIDS remain high on the domestic and international agenda.

Burnet Institute HIV researcher, Dr Clovis Palmer will be speaking at the event which is hosted by Michael Dalton with accompaniment from Low Rez, Melbourne’s all male community pop choir.

As Melbourne prepares to host the International AIDS Society meeting, AIDS 2014, in July, the International Candlelight Memorial is an important reminder of the global impact of HIV and continuing fight against HIV related stigma and discrimination.

Organised by Living Positive Victoria, the International Candlelight Memorial is a free and accessible event supported by the City of Melbourne which engages Victorians with the community of people living with HIV, both locally and internationally and all those who are active in the continuing fight against HIV and AIDS.
