On 24 November Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society (GIZIL AYPARA) held a large-scaled
training meeting with 100 volunteers, with participation of the HIV/AIDS peer
The meeting was faciliated by the Norwegian youth delegates and GIZIL AYPARA
departments, and funded by Norwegian Government.
Two PWLA (People living with HIV/AIDS) also participated at the meeting.
The reason for holding this meeting was to provide the volunteers with necessary
information about HV/AIDS in general and the campaign in particular. This was
a very good tool to prepare the volunteers. GIZIL AYPARA and IFRC Delegation
staff also participated.
After the training, the volunteers were divided into six groups and had an
art competition. Art competition was followed up with a discoteque, which started
with announcement of winners.
