3 things you can do to celebrate Nelson Mandela Day!

Today we celebrate the legacy of one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century: Nelson Mandela!

In the later years of his life, Mandela spoke publicly and passionately about the fight against AIDS. He also took concrete action for change running campaigns dedicated to fighting AIDS. Mandela was convinced that ending the stigma that surrounded HIV and providing access to antiretrovirals (ARV) were solutions to combating the disease and saving lives.

So, we thought, what better way to honour Mandela’s legacy than continuing to transform these words into action?

Join us in sharing Mandela’s words and continuing his fight to end AIDS! Here are three things you can do to get involved:

1. #StepUpTheFight against AIDS.

Nelson Mandela said, “History will surely judge us harshly if we do not respond with all the energy and resources that we can bring to bear in the fight against HIV/AIDS.” Honour his legacy by adding your name to our petition and show your commitment to ending HIV/AIDS for good.
