Dear forum members,

The 25th Annual International AIDS Candlelight Memorial is scheduled for Sunday

May 18th 2008.

The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial, a program of the Global Health

Council, is among the world's oldest movements by civil society for HIV/AIDS

remembrance, awareness and community action. Started in 1983, the historic

Candlelight Memorial takes place every third Sunday in May and is led by some

1,200 volunteer Candlelight Coordinators in 119 countries who host vigils for

their communities.

The Candlelight Memorial is also more than just a memorial. It is an

opportunity to educate about AIDS, advocate for policy change, foster

partnerships and community dialogue, and improve skills for community

mobilization. With 33 million people estimated to be infected worldwide, the

Candlelight serves as an important uniting intervention among civil society and

their governments, breaking down social barriers, and giving hope to future



If you can plan an observance in your community/organization/institut ion please

do so early enough and register it online at


Registration is Free of cost and all registered community coordinators will

receive a kit which will have a manual, posters, and other information.

Thanking you,

With regards,
