ABOUT “A DAY WITH HIV”
On Friday, September 21, people everywhere, both HIV positive and
negative, can share an image of coping and care through the lens of a
camera. For the third year A Day with HIV will help remove the stigma of
HIV and to advance an international community of care through this
collective photographic portrait.  On Friday, September 21 anyone can
record a special image, a time with friends and family, at work or play,
or any moment in the day that helps people better understand how HIV
impacts people, loved ones, colleagues and communities. Photos need to
be submitted by Tuesday, September 25 on the A Day with HIV web site.
