Sunday trip to Panauti, Newari heritage town as well as one of the few places in the area unscathed by the earthquake
Observations of World AIDS Day in Bouddha and Panauti, Nepal. World AIDS Day is December 1rst and was first celebrated in 1988 to raise awareness of AIDS/HIV, support those living with AIDS/HIV, and remember those who passed away. Nepal's rate of AIDS/HIV infection is not quite considered "severe" but it is strongly concentrated in certain populations including women sex workers, transgender people generally, and people who use intravenous drugs. I was surprised to learn this when I first arrived in Nepal perhaps because I didn't see PSAs or other public education efforts around Kathmandu, as I am accustomed to seeing in some areas of the US and when I studied in South Africa. Here is some information on AIDS/HIV in Nepal from @unaidsglobal [http://www.unaids.org/en/regionscountries/countries/nepal] #worldaidsday2017#kathmandu#publichealth#worldaidsdaynepal#bouddha#panauti#worldaidsday#vigil#elenaletsluce#elenaletsluceinnepal
