World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day is held on  December 1 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 and the first one was held in 1988.  This year's theme, “The Time to Act Is Now,” calls us to act with urgency to implement the latest high-impact, evidence-based HIV prevention strategies. 

More than 1.2 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV.  HIV can and does affect all people. Some populations and parts of the country have been more affected than others.  While there is not yet a cure, HIV is a preventable and treatable disease.

30 years after the first cases of HIV – The red ribbon is the universal symbol of awareness and support for those living with HIV. The red ribbon was the first ever ribbon symbol.
