The Equality Rights Group has today launched a HIV/AIDS awareness campaign in association with events company Omi Palone, and as a lead-up to World Aids Day on 1 December. Throughout the month, a range of posters debunking basic and incorrect information on HIV/AIDS will be distributed ]as a first step in properly informing the public’.
Omi’s CEO River Pinfold and his team coined the idea of designing and distributing awareness posters as a way of leading up to an event called ‘The Red Event’ on Saturday 30th November at Dusk, Ocean Village. As a rights organisation, ERG is very keen to foster and encourage businesses with a social conscience in Gibraltar, and we’re happy to join forces with their team on this important issue.
