The theme for the 2019 observance is “Ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic: Community by Community” (“Poniendole fin a la epidemia del VIH / SIDA: Comunidad por comunidad”). World AIDS Day is December 1st.
World AIDS Day was first observed in 1988. Each year, organizations and individuals across the world bring attention to the HIV epidemic, endeavor to increase HIV awareness and knowledge, speak out against HIV stigma, and call for an increased response to move toward Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America.
If you, or anyone you, know needs testing or treatment for HIV or AIDS please go to your local health department, clinic or healthcare provider to be tested and learn about your treatment options and how to prevent the spread of this disease.
