BONELA AND FRANCISTOWN DMSAC TO HOLD HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN
The Botswana Network on Ethics, Law and HIV/AIDS (BONELA) in partnership with the Francistown District Multi-sectoral AIDS Committee (DMSAC) will hold a Human Rights and HIV/AIDS promotional campaign on Saturday the 12th of June 2010 in Francistown. This promotion dubbed “the bash” will commence with a March at 8.00am from Tati Police Station and culminate in a Ceremony at Galo Mall.
The ceremony will be graced by the Mayor of Francistown; Francistown District Commissioner; the President of Tati Customary Court; DMSAC members and other government bodies; members of the legal fraternity; the media; corporate entities; civil society organisations; people living with HIV and AIDS; workers unions; schools and human rights activists.
BONELA and Francistown DMSAC therefore invite the public to participate in the march and the ceremony and contribute to building the required critical mass to stimulate excitement and motivation for energizing HIV/AIDS prevention momentum amongst the Francistown population.
This activity is envisaged to provide an opportunity for various stakeholders to discuss mutual interests and potential future collaboration, such as finding ways of shining the light of human rights in the national response to HIV and AIDS.
