professionals, supporters and scientists who are working together to find a safe and

effective AIDS vaccine and urge the international community to recognize the

importance of investing in new technologies as a critical element of a

comprehensive response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

 

This years’ occasion was graced by KAVI-ICR Deputy Director Prof. Walter Jaoko,

Representative to the Deputy County Commissioner Lang’ata Sub-County,

WAC Director and Area Chief. The team went for a community sensitization

walk and there after various entertainment groups from Kibra made various

presentations to sensitize the community on the importance of the day.
