- Red Ribbon Awards
Red Ribbon Awards
The Penn CFAR CAB held the first ever Red Ribbon Awards Ceremony in the world in 2004. The ceremony is held each year in commemoration of World AIDS Day, and recognizes the tireless efforts of our local heroes in policy, research, community, faith, youth leadership and more. The Penn CFAR CAB has developed partnerships with several programs from the School District of Philadelphia showcasing the work of youth around the city and creating the space to continue the work of HIV activism and education.
RED RIBBON AWARDS 2021: “One Moment, Two Epidemics, and Our Superheroes.”
Resources have had to be reallocated this past year with COVID taking in the forefront of research and services. Many members of the community managed to work on both the COVID and HIV epidemics. This year we recognized those Superheroes who handled both successfully.
