Interviews will be recorded and edited in to 5-7 minute audio segments that will be used as educational tools with healthcare providers.

No identifying information will be shared, and voices can be disguised if necessary.

We are able to offer participants an honorarium as a thank-you for their time. If anyone would like more information, they can email Wes at wheney@hivaidsconnection.ca

London, Ontario - Around the corner and around the globe, HIV/AIDS continues to be present in today’s society and London’s new Mayor will acknowledge this in one of his first official duties on Monday, December 1st – World AIDS Day.
Just hours after taking office, Mayor Matt Brown received a symbolic “Red Scarf” from Brian Lester, Executive Director, Regional HIV/AIDS Connection at 10:30 a.m. in the Mayor’s Office.

The Red Scarf Project, launched by RHAC just three years ago, is an awareness building campaign that has now spread to other communities in the province. Over a thousand red scarves have been made by volunteers and distributed to members of the London community in order to start the conversation about HIV/AIDS during AIDS Awareness Week, November 24 – December 1, 2014.

Mayor Brown has said “I am pleased to show my support for World AIDS Day. Not only is there major AIDS research taking place in our City, but London is also the hub of HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and support for the region. Despite improved treatment and fewer deaths, there continues to be no cure and we must not forget that HIV/AIDS lives in our community”.

In thanking the Mayor, RHAC’s Executive Director said “behind this red scarf there are many stories about how HIV and AIDS have impacted the lives of Londoners. It is a major issue affecting people from all walks of life, including many who live in poverty. We, at Regional HIV/AIDS Connection, are very grateful when community leaders like Mayor-elect Brown take a moment – on such a momentous day – to recognize this”.

For more information on AIDS Awareness Week and World AIDS Day, including London’s Vigil, please contact Emily Marcoccia, Director, Community Relations at 519 434-1601 ext. 229 or emarcoccia@hivaidsconnection.ca
