To date, 13,000 people have died from AIDS in Malaysia – this is to remember them, and hope another 13,000 will never, ever be reached. This is just the official number – the actual number could be more, much more, and doesn't include those amongst us living with HIV, and trying their best to keep AIDS at bay.
By World AIDS Day, 1st December 2010, – 13,000 or more photos will be exhibited at one of the largest social photographic exhibitions ever in Asia – all for a single cause.
AIDSAware is a first of its kind awareness movement which is a joint collaboration between PT Foundation and ruumzcauses whereby the public themselves become the vehicle for creating and spreading AIDS awareness utilizing social media. The public is encouraged to take a picture of themselves, their friends and/or their family members holding a AIDS/HIV related message on a piece of paper or card and posting and sharing their "photo messages" online.
It incorporates a Public Service Announcement (PSA) angle whereby 42 prominent personalities and celebrities got together for free to shoot high quality photos holding their own messages on AIDS in the vein of the "Got Milk?" campaign from the United States. These shots will be compiled into a calendar, postcards, posters for PSAs and more.
During the photoshoot, behind the scene videos and celebrity video messages were also shot to raise awareness and encourage further participation. The project hopes not only to create more awareness on HIV and AIDS prevention, but also to make it less taboo to discuss and talk about HIV and AIDS.
AIDSAware advocates safer sex, being responsible for our own and other people's health, being accountable for our actions and not discriminating against people living with HIV. We hope to collect 13,000 "photo messages" by end December 2010, as 13,000 Malaysians have died to date from AIDS in Malaysia.
The "photo messages" collected up to 31st December 2010 will be printed and displayed in one of the largest social photographic exhibitions ever attempted in terms of exhibits in Malaysia, in January 2011.
