#AIDS2012: OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative Selected to Host Hub

Hi!! Just got this in my email- and thought to share!!

OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative Selected to Host Hub for the XIX International AIDS Conference 

OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative to Help Expand the Reach of and Participation in the International AIDS Conference through Conference Hubs Programme
OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative has been selected as an approved Hub organizer for the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012). The OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative Hub will take place in ABUJA on 25th of August 2012.
Conference hubs are “mini conferences” held in conjunction with the international conference by local organizations active in the AIDS response, and work to expand the reach of and participation in the International AIDS Conference. Sessions from the International AIDS Conference are recorded or telecast free of charge and screened at organizers’ discretion. These sessions are followed by moderated discussions with local or regional experts to examine how the session content can strengthen the local HIV/AIDS response. 
“The OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative has established itself as a global leader in the fight to end the AIDS epidemic,” said AIDS 2012 International Chair Elly Katabira. “It is fitting OROL Youth Empowerment Initiative host a hub to ensure stakeholders in ABUJA, NIGERIA have the opportunity to enhance their efforts with the local AIDS response, and be active participants in AIDS 2012.” 
OROL stands for Our Right Our Lives, which is a youth-led organization that empowers youth on sexual and reproductive health issues including HIV and AIDS. With programming bases in both Lagos and Abuja, we have continued to work within our means, to fill in societal humanitarian and health needs where we can.
