IONIS Standby Against AIDS
Over 33 million people worldwide are infected with the AIDS virus. In France, each year more than 6,500 people come to know of their HIV positivity.
For the fifth consecutive year, schools under IONIS Education Group are mobilized on the eve of the World Day of Fight Against HIV / AIDS observed on December 1st since 1995.
During this occasion, schools covered various topics related to the virus such as information, risk awareness, prevention, disease progression and treatment or taking care of the sick.
Each institution of IONIS Education Group stepped-in in its own way by organizing lectures, screening films, collection stalls for associations fighting against AIDS (Sidaction, AIDES, or AIDS Info Services).
