AIDS: Are you at risk?

As young adults, some of us still have a childhood mentality that believes we are invincible. Nothing can hurt us, we will all live to be 100 years old, and of course, we will always have our good health because only old people have to deal with diseases. Many college students take care of their bodies, some by sticking to healthy eating habits, some by taking vitamins, some by regularly exercising, and some by doing all of these. But how many students take care of their sexual health? [More]

World AIDS Day activities planned

On December 1, O‘ahu will be joining the rest of the world in remembering those who have died from AIDS and those who are now living with AIDS. The World Health Organization declared the first World AIDS Day 17 years ago, in 1988, and people are still using the day to bring attention to AIDS issues and to offer hope and support to all those affected.

So what can you do this year to support the millions of people affected by AIDS worldwide? You can start by wearing a red ribbon, which you can either purchase or make yourself.

O‘ahu is also hosting a variety of events on Dec. 1, most of which take place downtown. Starting at 11 a.m., you can visit representatives of local health organizations who will be set up on King and Bishop streets outside of the Bank of Hawai‘i.

From 2 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. AIDS memorial quilts will be shown in the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace on Fort Street Mall. At 5:30 p.m. a short service at the Cathedral will be followed by a candlelight vigil.

At 7:30 p.m. Simple Courage, a one-hour documentary will be shown at Next Door, a café at 43 N. Hotel Street. The documentary shows parallels between how leprosy was treated in the late 19th century and how AIDS is treated now.
