The Vienna Life Ball - the biggest annual charity event in Europe supporting people with HIV or AIDS - has made a net profit of €2.3 million.

"We had been preparing ourselves for one of the worst year's ever, so this is a wonderful reward for the whole team," Life Ball organiser Gery Keszler said. 

Aids Life, the charitable association which organizes the Life Ball, has been supporting Austrian AIDS charities since the first event in 1993.

This year it plans to give €500,000 to national projects, in particular Aids Hilfen Österreich, which provides help and advice for people affected by HIV and AIDS throughout Austria. Currently, around 12,000 to 15,000 people in Austria are living with HIV. 

Aids Life also contributes to non-profit organizations like the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), which distributes aid to various initiatives, including projects to reduce mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Swaziland, and to help HIV-positive drug users and their newborns in Ukraine.
