Media Advisory: Global AIDS Spokespersons Available for Comment for World AIDS Day from Canadian-Based Organization



    TORONTO, Nov. 27 /CNW/ - Spokespersons from Dignitas International will
be available to comment to media on issues related to the global AIDS pandemic
throughout the week as World AIDS Day is commemorated on December 1st. Several
of Dignitas's senior team members recently returned from Malawi, Africa, and
are prepared to speak to both the challenges and successes of the AIDS
response.
    Dignitas International is a Canadian medical humanitarian organization
dramatically increasing access to essential HIV/AIDS-related prevention,
treatment, care and support, including life-saving antiretroviral medications.
Dignitas nurtures and strengthens people affected by AIDS, particularly women
and children, and trains and supports caregivers, coordinating services with
governments and grassroots groups to empower communities in their response to
AIDS. Dignitas works with the Malawi Ministry of Health to deliver this
sustainable community-based programming in Malawi, Africa, and will expand to
additional regions overwhelmed by the pandemic.
    Dignitas is led by Dr. James Orbinski, who accepted the 1999 Nobel Peace
Prize as International President of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF/Doctors
Without Borders).
