Supporting the Campaign for an AIDS Free Generation.

To mark World AIDS day on the 1st of December, I took part in a charity football match to raise awareness of the campaign to end mother to child transmission of AIDS by 2015. Mother to child transmission of AIDS afflicts 500 000 babies each year, but it can be prevented by easily available and low cost drugs.

A team from Parliament and a team from the UN braved the wind and the snow for a great cause. The end result was a hard won 4-1 victory by the team from the UN.

Here are some photos from the day (spot the less than fit defender!):
