'Give AIDS the Red Card' web competition closes
14 July 2010
With the ending of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, the UNAIDS web contest has come to a close as well. Contestants joined the UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassadors footballers Michael Ballack and Emmanuel Adebayor in the ‘Give AIDS the Red Card’ web competition to learn about HIV and win prizes. The contest engaged hundreds of participants from all corners of the world. Respondents’ thoughtful ideas for a solution to stopping stigma and discrimination were particularly enlightening and promising.
The UNAIDS advocacy campaign, 'From Soweto to Rio de Janeiro, give AIDS the red card to prevent babies from becoming infected with HIV' is one of the initiatives towards ensuring a healthy and HIV-free generation of children.
Lucky winners will soon receive prizes and memorabilia, courtesy of Ballack, Adebayor and UNAIDS. UNAIDS would like to thank participants from all over the globe for their entries – we hope that you will continue to join us in working towards zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths!
