"Human rights are our common heritage and their realization depends on the contributions
that each and every one of us is willing to make, individually and collectively, now and in the future."

Louise Arbour
United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights


HUMAN RIGHTS DAY 2004 - World Health Organization

Celebrity footballer Christian Karembeu, a member of France's 1998 World Cup winning squad and current captain of FC Servette Geneva, will participate in a friendly training session with young footballers from Geneva's Grand-Saconnex club and the WHO women's team. Organised by the Health and Human Rights team and the HIV/AIDS Department, the activity represents the millions of young people and football fans around the world who embrace the message of joining the two global movements of football and the promotion of human rights in the context of HIV/AIDS. The cartoon HIV/AIDS Stand Up for Human Rights, sponsored by FIFA, will be disseminated at the event, which will be followed by a media event with Dr Jim Kim, Director of the HIV/AIDS department of WHO.
