World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day, observed December 1 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. There have been a lot of advances toward the fight against AIDS, but stigma and discrimination still exist. That's why it's important to raise awareness, continue to show our support for those living with HIV, and remember those who died. This year, join the conversation and participate in our activities below.
