Nursing Students Plan to Reach Out to Vulnerable Community on World Aids Day, Dec. 1




NSU College of Nursing students




On World Aids Day, Dec. 1, BSN students from the College of Nursing on NSU’s main campus will reach out to a vulnerable community. These students are planning to conduct a health promotion project at the Cooperative Feeding Center in Ft. Lauderdale and will partner with Care Resource to provide resources to the community in an effort to prevent the spread of AIDS.

According to its website, World Aids Day unites people worldwide to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and demonstrate international solidarity in the face of the pandemic. The day is an opportunity for public and private partners to spread awareness about the status of the pandemic and encourage progress in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care in high prevalence countries and around the world.

During 2011-2015, World AIDS Days will have the theme of “Getting to zero: zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS related deaths.” The World AIDS Campaign focus on “Zero AIDS related deaths” signifies a push towards greater access to treatment for all; a call for governments to act now. It is a call to honor promises such as the Abuja declaration and for African governments to meet established targets for domestic spending on health and HIV.
