2019 Candlelight Memorial in Zomba

Candlelight memorial in Zomba

This year’s International AIDS Candlelight Memorial (ICAM) will be commemorated at Nasawa Technical College in Zomba on July 21.

The event will be held under the theme “Intensifying the fight for health and rights”.

Started in 1983, the ICAM is one of the oldest and largest grassroots mobilisation campaigns for HIV awareness in the world.

It is coordinated by the Global Network of People Living with HIV and involves a coalition of some 1,200 community organisations in 115 countries.

The event falls on the third Sunday in May; however, in Malawi the day was pushed forward as it fell within the period the country was conducting Tripartite Elections.
