World remembers AIDS victims

Filed under: Health & Nutrition,Latest News |

Every year, December 1, the world commemorates World AIDS Day.

People around the world unite to show support for people living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and to remember those who have died from Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS)-related illnesses.

Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first-ever international day for global health.

Every year, this day is observed through awareness-raising activities around the globe by people wearing a red ribbon, the universal symbol of awareness of, support for and solidarity with people living with HIV and by people living with HIV making their voice heard on issues important in their lives specially events that highlight the current state of the epidemic.

This year’s theme of aid day is Equalize.

UNAIDS is urging everyone to address the inequalities which are holding back progress in ending AIDS.

This year’s theme joins a growing list of challenges that World AIDS Day has alerted people to globally.

World AIDS Day remains as relevant today as it’s always been, reminding people and governments that HIV has not gone away.

There is still a critical need for increased funding for the AIDS response, to increase awareness of the impact of HIV on people’s lives, to end stigma and discrimination and to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV.
