World AIDS Day 2009

CAM Staff hold a sign with the 2009 theme for World AIDS Day. CAM joined several other NGOs to spread the word about HIV/AIDS during a public awareness campaign on December 1 2009.
CAM handed out red ribbons and bumper stickers to drivers at rush hour in Chiang Mai.

An important part of CAM's mission is to educate and increase public awareness on HIV/AIDS.

Youth ages 15-24 have one of the fastest growing infection rates in Thailand.There are currently more than 600,000 people living with HIV in the country, 250,000 of them are women over the age of 15 and 14,000 are children.
