As part of World AIDS Day celebrated on December 1 each year, Agl Côte d’Ivoire organized training and training sessions on December 15 and 16, 2023, in the cities of Abidjan and San Pedro. awareness. The program included conferences, screening sessions, distribution of condoms to company employees against this disease which each year causes 8,000 deaths out of 400,000 people living with AIDS in Ivory Coast.

The multinational also offered, in partnership with the NGO Messi, food to families affected by the disease and organized a Christmas tree for 200 children living with HIV-Aids in San Pedro.

These initiatives aim to demonstrate the solidarity of the multinational towards people affected by this pathology, on the one hand and to contribute, on the other hand, to reducing this disease through awareness.

In line with the donation of a playground to child victims of HIV-Aids in the city of Daloa in 2021, and the provision in 2020 of food and non-food items to NGOs committed to fighting this disease, Agl Côte d Ivoire reaffirms this year once again its commitment to AIDS through the medical care of its employees affected by this disease.

The company thus positions itself as a corporate citizen on the front line in the fight against AIDS and an essential support for organizations fighting this disease.

World AIDS Day appears to us as a call to action to support children, families and communities affected by the pandemic. We are therefore proud to contribute each year, through our initiatives, to reducing this disease within our services in particular and the population in general,” declared Joël Hounsinou, general director of Agl Côte d’Ivoire.
