Event Background

From 2005 to 2010, a few local businesses in Shanghai came together voluntarily to organize the World AIDS Day Gala to raise funds for HIV/AIDS organizations to support the work of creating awareness and education on HIV/AIDS prevention.

Five years have gone by, despite better medication and care being developed, theHIV/AIDS epidemic continues to be a growing issue. Much still needs to be done to create awareness about prevention.

Proceeds of the gala will benefit AIDSLIFE Center, a local organization that provides care and counseling for HIV/AIDS patients, raises awareness and support from society, and promotes tolerance and anti-discrimination of the infected.
