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.
