The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is launching a video contest under the theme of HIV/AIDS in Vietnam.

According to the organizer, the contest is held to commemorate the World AIDS Day on December 1 by remembering those who have fallen victim to AIDS, to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and to demonstrate international solidarity in the face of the pandemic.
