South Carolina now ranks 13th out of the 50 states in incidence of new infections and prevalence of HIV infection, with more than 3,600 people living with HIV/AIDS in the Lowcountry as of 2015. The Charleston Area World AIDS Day committee—comprised of volunteers from Lowcountry AIDS Services, the Ryan White Wellness Center at Roper St. Francis Healthcare, and other local organizations—has planned several community events to encourage HIV/AIDS prevention, testing, education and overall awareness, including testing events at Walgreens, Trident Technical College, MUSC, College of Charleston, and Planned Parenthood, as well as information sessions and talk-backs at MUSC, CofC, and the Ryan White Wellness Center. In addition to these events, the committee invites the public to attend the Charleston Area World AIDS Day Community Awareness Candlelight Vigil in downtown Charleston, immediately followed by a short reception including refreshments and musical performances. Unitarian Church, 4 Archdale St. Thursday, 6:30-7:30pm.
