Thanks for caring
PEOPLE instrumental in sensitising the public about the HIV/AIDS programme were awarded for their contribution to the movement during an appreciation ceremony and cocktail reception at Accra Beach Hotel last Saturday night.
The event, under the theme Dare to Care, was produced by the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Human Resource Development HIV/AIDS Project Unit and was described as “a token of appreciation to you the awardees for your longstanding and tireless work”.
In his welcoming remarks, Andrew Cox Permanent Secretary Ministry of Labour, said the ministry was mandated in 2001 to educate and sensitise workers about the disease HIV/AIDS.
Those helping in the outreach comprise entities like the National HIV/AIDS Commission, the Small Business Association, trade unions, Non-Governmental Organisations and peer educators. (JS)
