The International AIDS mem- orial event, run since 1983, will be held on May 15. More than 1200 candle-lighting memorials will take place in 115 countries. The New Zealand Aids Foun- dation would like eastern suburbs residents to be able to go to a local memorial that will raise aware- ness of HIV. The foundation is looking for people to organise Auckland events. Anyone who cares about the HIV epidemic or has been touched by HIV/AIDS in some way can co- ordinate a memorial, regional co- ordinator Wayne Otter says. They don t have to be experi- enced at organising events as it could be a gathering of just a few people. Each memorial is special, whether it s three people or 300, held by the sea, at the summit of a mountain, in a church, a park or in a hall. It brings people together to acknowledge lives lost by the dis- ease. The Aids Foundation estimates 1800 New Zealanders are living with HIV. More than 3000 have been diag- nosed since the epidemic started in the mid 1980s, says national co- ordinator Dawn O Connor. Ms O Conner says prevention is an ongoing focus for the foun- dation. For more information go to www.nzaf.org.nz or phone Mr Otter on 309-5560.
