There was yet another poster making competition titled Paint Hope in the city, on the same day, for the same purpose – spreading awareness about AIDS – This was organized by UNAIDS in partnership with another organization.

That was not all, as a documentary film, I Want To Live, made by Sunil Gupta was also shown to the guests. One of the issues addressed in the film was the stigma attached to HIV/AIDS. This was followed by a short panel discussion by Mona Mishra, Ratan Singh and Anandi Yuvraj.

FILMS CAN HELP: One of the guests present, Anjali Sen, said “It’s time that more and more films on this issue are made, so that AIDS awareness spreads among people, and they also know what causes it.” Designer Rohit Gandhi was present there too, and he said, “Films, posters and counseling can change the mindsets about HIV positive people.”
