In commemoration of World AIDS Day, the Clinton Center will display the single largest traveling section of the AIDS Memorial Quilt.  Colorful and captivating, the panels were hand-sewn by friends and family members of AIDS victims and will blanket the lawn at the Clinton Center. This year's display will feature Arkansas-related quilt panels. As the sun sets, the Center will host a Closing Candlelight Ceremony that will include remarks from local subject-matter experts who will lead a short discussion about the importance of continued HIV/AIDS awareness and action.  
 
The World AIDS Day observance highlights the ongoing work of the Clinton Foundation through the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI).  CHAI works to improve global health by strengthening health systems in developing countries and expanding access to life-saving treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and diarrhea.
