The aim: to help affected people in an unconventional way and to fight against the taboo status of HIV/AIDS in our society. Therefore, Life Ball is an exuberant festivity that celebrates life and makes a loud statement in the fight against HIV and AIDS – resounding across the boundaries of Vienna and Austria. The broad national and international attention is particularly necessary, since the Life Ball also serves as voice of HIV positive people or people suffering from AIDS. The threat through AIDS is still present in the whole world; the HI-virus is deadly. HIV and AIDS can affect everybody regardless of gender, age, social status or sexual orientation.
