COMMEMORATION OF DECEMBER FIRST, WORLD DAY OF STRUGGLE
AGAINST AIDS

After 15 years of work, Planet Love proposed a new challenge: to organize in partnership with the Colombian Association of Infectious Diseases - ACIN, the first symposium on HIV with emphasis on pediatrics, academic meeting in order to share experiences in the management of perinatal and pediatric HIV, exchange knowledge and inform new scientific advances.

Thus, since 2010, we proposed to hold this meeting every two years with the participation of international professionals and national experts in the field. These meetings have enriched and strengthened the interdisciplinary team of national entities working with children and HIV.
 
 
 

PREVENTION AND AWARENESS-RAISING TALKS


Part of the Foundation's Mission is the social responsibility that we assume with the community, the business sector and the educational centers of Bogotá and its surroundings, to inform through conversations about what is HIV, AIDS and its prevention.

These conversations show us the importance of sensitizing the community in general, seeking to reduce new cases of infection and the stigma generated by misinformation.
