World Aids Day

Today is World Aids Day.

World AIDS Day is observed every year on December 1st. The World Health Organization established World AIDS Day in 1988. World AIDS Day provides governments, national AIDS programs, faith organizations, community organizations, and individuals with an opportunity to raise awareness and focus attention on the global AIDS epidemic.

Over a million Americans are estimated to be living with HIV. Worldwide, an estimated 33 million people are living with HIV.

Get the facts, and take action!

Here are some things you can do:

  • Get tested.
  • Decide not to engage in high risk behaviors.
  • Use protection (Not only for you, but for your partner too!).
  • TALK TALK TALK! Talk about HIV prevention with your family and friends.
  • Get involved!
