Welcome to AIDS RIDE 2014, Washington DC, United States to Melbourne Australia, as we have completed AIDS RIDE 2012 after connecting AIDS 2010 & AIDS 2012 with a complete bicycle ride that was concluded at the 19th International AIDS Conference, Washington DC, USA. It was an idea created in AIDS 2006, Toronto, to connect the biggest International AIDS Conferences! B'Care for the first time formulated 'AIDS RIDE 2008', a complete bicycle ride that connected AIDS 2006 & AIDS 2008, on 52 days including 8 resting days, followed by AIDS RIDE 2010, Mexico City to Vienna, Austria connecting AIDS 2008 & AIDS 2010!
However, the problem still persists: 2011 UNAIDS reports, number of people living with HIV/AIDS are 34.2 million and 8 million PLWHA received ARV, 330 000 children who acquired HIV infection, 2.5 million people acquired HIV infected, 1.7 million died of AIDS related illness
The aims and objectives of AIDS Ride 2014 are as follows:
1) To raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, 2) To counter stigma and discrimination, thereby promoting and protecting human rights, and more specifically to embody and promote in our actions the theme of the 20th International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2014), 3) To bridge the geographical space between the 19th International AIDS Conference (Washington DC, United States) and the 20th International AIDS Conference (Melbourne, Australia) and 4) Fundraising
Attention Everyone: Our logo use of Australian flag is temporary until we build a logo. Any volunteer is welcome to design a logo for AIDS RIDE 2014, based up on the flag or National Animal or anything related to the next conference etc
