‘WORLD AIDS DAY’ OBSERVED AT THE CAMPUSES OF FDDI
 
 

‘World AIDS Day’ was observed on 1st December 2011 at the campuses of the Footwear Design & Development Institute (FDDI) with the aim to eradicate the stigma and educating the public about HIV and AIDS.

“AIDS is not simply a health problem but, with it come social repercussions which cause the victim to be stigmatized in the society, which is unfair, and hence, as an Institute, it becomes our moral responsibility to boost awareness, increase participation, combat stigma, improve education and kick-start prevention strategies."
- Mr. Raajeev j Lakhara, IRS, Managing Director, FDDI.
 

The objective of the event was to create awareness about AIDS - Its cause(s) and prevention(s), among local people. Out of the 15 million people living with HIV and needing life-long treatment, only one third are receiving it.

 

It seems a bit like a racing game where the numbers of new infections always outnumber the account of people beginning treatment for the condition, leaving us with a whole lot to catch up.

 

Sharing the details, Mr. Raajeev j Lakhara, IRS, Managing Director, FDDI said, AIDS is not simply a health problem but, with it come social repercussions which cause the victim to be stigmatized in the society, which is unfair, and hence, as an Institute, it becomes our moral responsibility to boost awareness, increase participation, combat stigma, improve education and kick-start prevention strategies.

 

With more than 3 million people dying from HIV/AIDS in the world annually, it is awful that reasonable efforts are not being made worldwide to stop this epidemic, added Mr. Lakhara.

At the FDDI’s Rohtak Campus students marched in the rally carrying banners, placards and posters displaying slogans, quotations and their art of work. The main goal was to focus on to increase awareness on "Zero AIDS Related Deaths".

 

It was a clarion call to the society to perk up access and ensure basic rights to HIV victims while also giving additional focus to prevention, treatment, care and support for HIV victims.

 

At the FDDI’s Fursatganj Campus, to dispel the myth related to AIDS a rally was taken out through the main streets of Rare Bareli District where the staff members & students with banners & posters spreads massages like Say No To AIDS & Fight Against AIDS not Against People with AIDS.

 

The faculty and the students pledged that they would spread awareness among vulnerable groups, which included truck drivers, migratory laborers and rickshaw-pullers.

 

As a social responsibility, FDDI tried to contribute towards the society by spreading awareness on AIDS. The entire FDDI fraternity joined hands to fight against stigma and discrimination surrounding AIDS.
