The Philanthropy Concierge Proudly Presents The 2014 WAAW.
Atlanta, GA, June 29, 2014 – The City of Atlanta was chosen to be the world’s hosting city for THE 2014 WORLD AIDS AWARENESS WEEKEND – Friday, November 28th through the 30th. The kick-off will be at the GEORGIA WORLD CONGRESS CENTER on November 28th. The WAAW is 3 days preceding World AIDS Day, which is globally recognized on December 1st. The purpose of the WORLD AIDS AWARENESS WEEKEND is to not just spread awareness and knowledge about HIV/AIDS, but to also generate educated solutions to end this malicious killer. Unfortunately, this year marks the 33rd year since the disease hit the scene and it’s more prevalent today than ever before. There have been significant milestones in care, but we have quite a ways to go before seeing signs of a generation where there are no new cases being reported. THE PHILANTHROPY CONCIERGE decided to bridge a gap that will allow organizations, individuals and companies to band together to bring THE WORLD AIDS AWARENESS WEEKEND to an International platform.
AHzii CONSULTING GROUP along with IMAGE MAKERS MEDIA GROUP have linked their expertise with the Philanthropy Concierge to support marketing endeavors as well as bring visibility to the WAAW platforms. The goals for the 2014 WAAW is to create an impact through various forms of teaching in hopes of provoking others to be more engaged and responsible while providing a platform for the masses to get tested and to know their status. THE PHILANTHROPY CONCIERGE is cleverly including live performances, contests, calls to action, celebrity and professional keynote speakers who will inspire others inspire others to stand up and talk about the impact of AIDS in their respective communities and circles of influence.
WHY According to the World Health Organization’s statistics, 36 million people have died of HIV/AIDS since the first reported incidences in 1981. Globally, 42 million people are currently living with the disease. Since 2012, 1.2 million people have died, and 2.3 million new cases have been reported across the globe. There are approximately 1.2 million people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States. Of those, approximately 240,000 are unaware of their HIV-positive status. To date, nearly 300,000 women are included in the horrific number of those afflicted. In spite of the headway being made, infection rates are increasing rapidly. African Americans, Gay and Bi-Sexual Men of all ethnicities and Latinos are the hardest-hit demographics.
WHO The WORLD AIDS AWARENESS WEEKEND (WAAW) is a collaborative effort comprised of global and civic leaders, front-line agencies and individuals who advocate for a HIV/AIDS-free world. Through our marketing efforts, over 500,000,000 people will be reached through Radio, TV and the World-Wide Web. We anticipate10, 000 attendees will participate in the activities, including 4,000 plus people who will get tested for the first time.
WHAT Three days of non-intrusive, non-discriminatory activities that have a commonality in which each event is structured to increase HIV/AIDS awareness, testing and counseling in support of promoting the behavioral modifications needed to move towards a world with zero newly reported HIV infections.
