Life Ball 2018
People around the world envy Vienna today for this unique, life-affirming charity event. Every year, the city of Vienna and the people of Vienna together with international visitors set an example. Making a statement for a good reason Almost 80 million people worldwide have been infected with HIV in the past decades. More than half of them have died as a result of AIDS-related illness. And even today there is no cure. It is possible to live and survive HIV infection, but what is more serious is the fact that the issue remains taboo and people affected by HIV and AIDS are being discriminated against and marginalized on a daily basis - here in our country too. As long as this does not change fundamentally, as long as the entire community is convinced worldwide, it will not come true - namely “Together we can end AIDS”.
