16 May 2004 was declared as International Aids Candlelight Memorial Day. It was started by people living with HIV and Aids to break down the barriers of stigma and discrimination. The community mobilisation campaign began on 1 December, World Aids Day and ended with a memorial In May, to remember those who died with HIV& Aids and to support those who are infected. This serves as a mobilisation campaign to raise awareness about the disease.
