World Aids Day - 1 DecemberFACT: An estimated 33.3 million people live with HIV worldwide, 90% of whom are in developing countries.
December 1st marks World AIDS Day, a global event that unites people in the fight against HIV/AIDS. It is also an occasion to show support for people living with HIV/AIDS and to remember the 30 million lives lost to the epidemic.
Despite medical advances in HIV treatment and greater awareness about how HIV is transmitted, discrimination and stigma is a reality for many people living with HIV/AIDS. This contributes to feelings of isolation and can prevent people from accessing essential treatment and facilities. In developing countries, funding shortages are also a major obstacle to scaling up HIV treatment.
This year’s theme “Getting to Zero” reflects the United Nation’s goal of achieving zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths by 2015. It is also a reminder of the continued need to raise funds, fight prejudice and increase awareness about HIV/AIDS. Find out more.
