For 24 hours the names of those people will be streamed on the site every 3.5 seconds. A memorial to lost love.
AIDSWatch first appeared on (what was then) Century Cable in the Los Angeles area on December 1st, 1996.
AIDSWatch continues as an art project, primarily in the Los Angeles area.
At the turn of the century the project base moved to the West Hollywood Citychannel television facilities. The City of West Hollywood has dedicated a channel each year for the entire 24-hour program. Website technology improvements have now made it possible for this once ‘cable only’ program to go worldwide via the internet.
The goal is to fill the roster with unique names by the year 2011. In all the years past we have repeated names in order to fill the 24 hours. When all the spaces are filled and the viewer logs on, when they see a name for that brief three and a half seconds they will be reminded of someone’s lost love. Another lost life to HIV/AIDS.
AIDSWatch was created as a memorial.www.aidswatch.org

ORGANISED sporting evens have never been more popular. From triathlons to open swimming events and the heady heights of the half and full marathon, more and more people are prepared to have a go: often raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for good causes.
If you fancy you fancy a 5k challenge, why not join Positive East and their supporters in Richmond Park on the 21 November for their first ever World Aids Day 5K Fun Run. You would be helping them to secure HIV services for one of London’s oldest HIV charities.
Mark Santos, Positive East Director said: “HIV remains a real and sometimes enormous challenge for individuals and communities across London. The 5k Red Run is a fun opportunity to join us in the fight against HIV through raising awareness and much needed funds for our work.
“Over 26,000 people in London are living with HIV and this figure will continue to rise over the coming years. HIV remains a highly stigmatised health condition; significant numbers of people are living in poverty; and many are struggling with being able to keep healthy and well. Our services and support are essential to enable people living with HIV to overcome barriers to live full and healthy lives,” added Santos.
Positive East has worked with over 2500 HIV-positive residents in North East London. The charities main focus has been enabling people to live well with HIV through promoting health and wellbeing and offer a range of services including: advice, advocacy, counselling and support groups.
