National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day
In 2008 the National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA) launched this observance day to recognize the disproportionate impact of the epidemic on gay and bisexcual men. The day is a call to action to ensure that every person in every community-especially gay and bisexual men of all ages-knows and talks about HIV prevention and treatment options.
International Right to Know Day
The decision to celebrate and promote September 28 as the International Right to Know Day was taken on the last day of a Freedom of Information litigation conference held in 2002. The day acknowledges that the right of access to information is an important human right, is essential for transparent and accountable government, and makes possible the public involvement in formulating social policies and in the decision-making processes of governance.
