BANGOR – The battle against HIV and AIDS isn’t the public health epidemic it once was.
Thanks to modern healthcare, patients are living longer and healthier lives.
But the fight is far from over and that’s why a special vigil will soon be held to raise awareness.
Andrea Littlefield and Ambureen Rana joined Craig Colson with the details.
The Health Equity Alliance will hold a number of events December 1 to recognize “World AIDS Day” and to also let people know it’s still a problem that impacts many people around the world.
The organization plans to hold World AIDS Day events in Waterville, Ellsworth, Machias and at Pickering Square in Bangor.
It will get underway at noon and there will be several speakers including some who live with the illness.
It’s free, but donations will also be accepted to help the Health Equity Alliance continue its good work.
