This year, in commemoration of the World’s AIDS Day 2012, Chevron Indonesia Company (CICo) and YCAB Foundation held a series of internal campaigns. This program is an extension of “I Wanna Live” Program, which Chevron and YCAB Foundation have been running since 2010 for HIV/AIDS prevention.
Chevron and YCAB Foundation conducted internal campaign activities which included a couple of talkshows about HIV/AIDS to 400 Chevron’s employees in Darajat and Salak and Training of Trainers (ToT) to 20 Chevron’s employees in Jakarta. It is hoped that these internal campaigns would raise Chevron’s employees awareness about HIV/AIDS.
