Fighting against AIDS: PKUers are on the go!

Peking University, Dec, 11, 2013: “Love without HIV/AIDS!” Billboards written anti-HIV/AIDS declarations, distributions of HIV/AIDS prevention materials... On November 29th, a group of PKU volunteers took active actions for the 26th World AIDS Day’s approaching. Their yellow caps became a beautiful landscape at Peking University (PKU).

The campus resounded with laughter every now and then. Different from the traditional ways, the anti-HIV/AIDS declarations were recomposed from popular lyrics, attracting the students to join in. They took pictures around the campus, with featured billboards in their hands. “It’s cool!” The participants commented.

Other theme activities such as the prize quiz about HIV/AIDS prevention were taking place at PKU as well.

Students reading ANTI-AIDS brochures

Statistics showed that as of September, 434,000 people were detected with HIV/AIDS in China; more than 3,000 were between 15 and 18. HIV/AIDS is striking younger people in China, and the colleges and the universities are playing important roles in HIV/AIDS prevention on campus.

In 1981, a CDC publication called Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report first documented five cases of an illness that would come to be known as HIV/AIDS. In 1988, World AIDS Day is observed on December 1st every year by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Over 30 years, the human race has waged a battle against AIDS for so long. The fight is tough, and we students are taking the necessary steps to win the battle. Joining the anti-HIV/AIDS campaign, PKUers are on the go.
