HSH Princess Stephanie, President of Fight AIDS Monaco, took part in three major events leading up to World AIDS Day on December 1.
On November 22, the Princess and her daughter Pauline Ducruet came out to support the Fight AIDS Monaco team at the “Test in the City” operation in front of Carrefour.
This is an anonymous and free screening for the public. A total of 241 people were tested – 190 people by Fight Aids Monaco and 51 by the Emergency Department at Princess Grace Hospital.
On November 27, Princess Stephanie, along with Christophe Steiner, President of the National Council and Didier Gamerdinger Minister of Health and Social Affairs (who also was on hand for “Test in the City”) handed out memorial quilts at the Oceanographic Museum, each quilt carrying the names, birthdates and dates of death of victims of the disease.
Finally on December 1, in support of World AIDS Day, Princess Stephanie and Prince Albert, along with Camille Gottlieb and Louis Ducruet and his companion, attended the Fight Aids Monaco art auction at the Salon Atlantique at Le Meridien Beach Plaza hotel.
The event raised €188,100 for the charity.
Victims of domestic violence will now be able to seek help at pharmacies in Monaco, as authorities ramp up measures to protect vulnerable women during lockdown.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
