TamaraMiss Malaika 2008, Tamara Aku Dzormeku is gearing up for her Right To Live Campaign for 2010. Tamara, who is also a student of the University of Ghana Medical School, had an interaction with business executives of companies under the Ghana Business Coalition Against HIV Aids (GBCA) at a cocktail dinner for members of the coalition at the Novotel Hotel in Accra. The cocktail was chaired by Sanjay Rughani of the Executive Council of the GBCA and the Head of Standard Charted Bank, Ghana.   

Tamara used the interaction as an opportunity to throw more light on the Right to Live Campaign to the high profiled cocktail meeting of the coalition and the strides she has made with the campaign so far. The campaign will be launched as part of the 2010 World Aids Day by the Ghana Aids Commission at the Ridge Hospital on Wednesday December, 1.

The Right To Live Campaign is an HIV/AIDS oriented campaign being spearheaded by Tamara Aku Dzormeku, Miss Malaika, 2008. As a beauty queen, Tamara believes there is a lot she can do to help the society. After embarking on malaria project during her reign, she has taken up the Right To Live Campaign among others objectives aims at helping intensify the promotion of safety measures that would ensure healthy sexual lifestyle patterns and also sensitize and correct public perception on people living with HIV Aids thus ending the issue of stigmatization and discrimination as well as helping HIV AIDS agencies in the fight against AIDS.

A seminar was organized earlier in November in Cape Coast for students of the various cycle institutions at the Ghana National Association of Teachers Hall. The well attended seminar was very successful with the participants taken through lessons on HIV Aids as well as other STDs from able personnel of the National Aids Control Programme. There was also counseling and testing session for the students which saw most of the testing to know their status.

Tamara also spoke about a Counseling and Testing Session for CEOs organized with the Coalition for CEOs and Top Management Executives of the various companies and industries that participated in the 2010 Annual General Meeting of the Association of Ghana Industries. Tamara implored patrons at the cocktail to sign up to the Campaign Testing Session for companies next year and also asked them to support the campaign in their own small way to make objectives of the campaign a reality.

Before the year ends, the campaign will embark on the VIP/Celebrity Endorsement where Very Important Personalities in the Ghanaian Society as well as celebrities would give brief messages on HIV/AIDS. This will start running on the various television stations from the second week in December.
