World AIDS Day and Poster Prize activity at the school Liceo Alcalde Jorge Indo, Chile

Alcalde Jorge Indo High School in Quilicura, Chile, which suffered heavy damage in the huge earthquake in February 2010, was the centre of World AIDS Day activities on 1 December.

In partnership with UNESCO Santiago and the Regional Centre for Information and Support for HIV and AIDS Prevention (CRIAPS), the school celebrated its winning of first prize in the Vienna AIDS Conference poster competition organized by UNESCO headquarters. The award was presented to the Director of the School, along with official certification as a UNESCO Associated School. CRIAPS presented a play to high school students. Called ‘It’s Not That simple, But Not That Complicated, Either’, it relates to everyday situations that adolescents and young people face where they need to protect themselves against HIV and other STIs. The event was attended by the Mayor, the Municipal Council, School Directors and members of the Joint UN Team on HIV and AIDS in Chile.
