QVM Mural Dedicated To Flight MH17 Victims

The Queen St. Wall Mural was completed by young participants from more than 50 countries who attended this year’s AIDS Conference in Melbourne. Four key messages were included in the artwork - calling for treatment for all people with HIV/AIDS, an end to punitive and discriminatory laws, a comprehensive sexual health education and for everyone affected with the disease to be loved.

Queen Victoria Market's latest mural will honour the delegates who died en route to the conference. Six people bound for the international event, including top Dutch AIDS researcher Joep Lange, were on board flight MH17 when it was shot down over the Ukraine.
