In honor of World AIDS Day, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is hosting events and commemorations around the world including a free community concert taking place in Atlanta at Center Stage on Thursday, Dec. 5.

This is just one of four community concerts in the U.S. with high-profile talent, which started in Dallas, TX with a blowout performance by Diana Ross.

For the Atlanta concert, singers Deborah Cox, Raheem DeVaughn, and rapper K Camp will grace the stage for the cause.

The largest global AIDS organization, AHF is simultaneously hosting nearly 100 other events in many of the 43 countries where it provides services.

In addition, throughout the week surrounding World AIDS Day nearly 100 other
commemoration events and observations are taking place in many of the 43 countries where
AHF provides services.

This year, AHF is also honoring “Our Champions” at all its U.S. World AIDS Day events. “Our
Champions” are select group of individuals, both living and dead, who have made a profound
impact in the decades long fight against HIV and AIDS and these champions include local
community advocates, important figures like Princess Diana, Connie Norman, Elizabeth Taylor,
Larry Kramer, Pedro Zamora, AHF co-founder Chris Brownlie and others who will be
recognized, remembered and honored nationwide.

AHF staff and volunteers have been and will be on hand at many of these events with services
including free HIV testing, interactive sessions to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS, and more. Under
its “Keep the Promise” commitment, the AHF’s World AIDS Day events celebrates the progress
made and community advocates who continue to champion the fight against HIV/AIDS, as well
as serve as a reminder that there’s still much work to be done globally in fighting this epidemic.

The funds that were raised by the AIDS Walk Atlanta & Music Festival support AID Atlanta and
ten other organizations who will receive donations at the concert. The organizations are AID
Atlanta, Aniz, CPACS (Center for Pan Asian Community Services), Jerusalem House, Living Room,
NAESM (National AIDS Education & Services for Minorities), The Names Project Foundation,
Open Hand Atlanta, Positive Impact Health Centers, Someone Cares, and Thrive SS.
