What is World AIDS Day?

World AIDS Day is held on the 1st December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988. This year’s theme is Hands Up For #HIVPrevention.

Hands Up For HIVPrevention

This theme aims to emphasize the different aspects of HIV Prevention and what it means for specific groups of people, such as adoloscent girls and young women, key populations and people living with HIV.

1.9 million adults became infected with HIV last year. The world must take immediate action to close the #HIVprevention gap. #worldaidsday
