The East Central Africa Division hosted the 8th AAIM Tri-Division Advisory on April 12-16, 2024 in Kigali, Rwanda, on the campus of the Adventist School of Medicine of East and Central Africa (ASOME) and Adventist University of Central Africa (AUCA). These two institutions graciously hosted the 8th AAIM tri-Divisional Advisory. AAIM coordinators, Hospital workers, Union and Division directors from the three African Divisions (ECD, South Africa Indian Ocean Division (SID), and West Africa Division (WAD) attended to map the way forward on addressing the challenge that is HIV/AIDS. GC Vice President, Pr. Abner De Los Santos, gave a challenging call for commitment to Mission addressing leaders and church members alike to refocus on service to mankind, starting with personal relationship with God. In addition, AAIM new brand and logo was presented, introducing the “Red ribbon which incorporates the iconic 3 flames of the gospel,” reported Dr. Dr. Bangwato Sikwa Ramabu, AAIM Director. Together with the new logo, AAIM also launched a novel HIV Prevention campaign dabbed “WHO AM EYE”….whose “eye” is on me. A new campaign aimed at bringing back enthusiasm of chastity among Adventist young people. The Bible equivocally calls for sexual purity, and statistical evidence shows that the societal explosion of sexual licentiousness has led to concomitant flareup of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) including HIV/AIDS. With this campaign, initiatives are to be put in place to conscientize Adventist young people and the community at large about the values and benefits of sexual purity.
