The “Know Your Status” campaign is launching December 1, 2016 – on World AIDS Day. But before the year-long campaign runs out on December 1, 2017, it is going to culminate in the opening ceremony of the Life Ball 2017. “Know Your Status” will play a thematic role in the entire production of the Life Ball. Numerous national and international celebrities will join the movement and lead by example. Because, when it comes to educating young people, we still have a long way to go! Society, media and politic bear a great responsibilty. There is still an alarming ignorance among adolescents towards HIV mainly because an infection has stopped posing an immediate threat to one’s health.
