The Youth Opening and Reception on August 2nd is one of the events planned and coordinated by the Mexico Youth Force. Since the International AIDS Conference in 2006, it has been the official event welcoming young people to the conference, as a form of recognition of the importance of youth¹s leadership in the global response to HIV and AIDS.
The Youth Opening and Reception celebrates the greater and meaningful involvement of youth within the International AIDS Conference, while at the same time taking notice of the significant impact that HIV and AIDS has on young people's lives.
Through an evening of celebration, key note speakers, and entertainment (with Julieta, Venegas, DJ Baxter and others), the Youth Opening and Reception will set the tone for a positive and youth-friendly 2008 International AIDS Conference.
Date: August 2nd, 2008 Time: 8.30 pm - 01.00 am Place: Museo Jose Luis Cuevas Academia Street #13 (Behind the National Palace)
