World AIDS Day 2009 is being commemorated under the theme of "Universal Access and Human Rights." The Hunger Project's integrated development approach, which includes our response to HIV/AIDS, is based on a fundamental regard for human rights. To date, 880,000 people have taken our HIV/AIDS and Gender Inequality Workshop.
On the December 1, 2008, The Hunger Project-Malawi joined the rest of the world in commemorating this year's World AIDS Day. The event engaged various members of the community in presentations on important issues from prevention to care.
