World AIDS Day

The Embassy supported World AIDS Day, December 1st, by illuminating the Ambassador’s residence, also known as Bosch Palace, in red.  In addition, visa applicants were greeted with World AIDS Day posters and statistics on HIV/AIDS in Argentina and how one can receive a free diagnostic test in Buenos Aires.

The Embassy also hosted a roundtable event on how to achieve this year’s World AIDS Day theme: “An AIDS Free Generation” that involved members of the Ministry of Health, Buenos Aires City Government officials, ONUSIDA, UNICEF, and various local organizations, such as Fundación Huésped, RAMVISH (Red de Mujeres Viviendo con VIH-SIDA), Fundación Helios Salud, and youth representatives all dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS.
