The World Aids Day (WAD) is commemorated each year on 1st December to show support for People Living with and affected by HIV and AIDS while the International Aids Candlelight Memorial (IACM) is held in May each year.
The guest of honor was the Principal Secretary of Health responsible for Administration, Mr. Beston Chisamile. He said that Malawi did not join the international community to commemorate the 2023 IACM in May as the country’s focus was towards Cyclone Freddy response.
