The Stop Aids Campaign is marking World Aids Day tomorrow by launching a campaign to remind G8 leaders of their July pledge to provide universal access to Aids treatment by 2010.
The World is Watching encourages supporters to email close-up pictures of their eyes, which will then be posted on its website as well as being displayed in a touring bus gallery. It hopes to receive 8,500 photos, one for every person who dies from Aids in a single day.
New UN figures show there have been more than three million Aids deaths this year. Of these, 570,000 were children.
Meanwhile, Ensuring Positive Futures, a consortium of HIV charities including the Terrence Higgins Trust, is using World Aids Day to highlight impending changes to the Disability Discrimination Act.
From 5 December, the Act will outlaw discrimination against people living with HIV from the moment of diagnosis, instead of from the first appearance of symptoms.
