World AIDS Day

Full Story
World AIDS Day is observed on December 1 each year. It is a day of solidarity for people around the world who are affected by HIV.  This is a day for voices to unite by sharing experiences, remembering those lost, and standing together in the fight against HIV.  While great strides have been made over the four decades since the first known reported cases of AIDS, this disease remains a public health challenge. World AIDS Day is an opportunity for every community and each individual to honor the more than 32 million people who have died worldwide from AIDS-related illness.
