Mali: First Edition of “HIV-Aids Foot” Soccer Event

The first edition of the “Sida Foot” (HIV-Aids Foot) event will take place in Bamako from June 17 to June 19, 2011, and will be attended by soccer stars. The blog xibar.net writes [fr], “this festival has a special meaning because the year 2011 coincides with 30 years since the discovery of the HIV-Aids virus, 10 years since the Declaration of Commitment by heads of states and governments and 5 years from [the deadline] of the Millennium Development Goals, emphasizing the matter of vertical transmission (from mother to child)”.
