World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day brings together people from around the world to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and demonstrate international solidarity in the face of the pandemic. The day is an opportunity for public and private partners to spread awareness and encourage progress in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care around the world.

A red ribbon is worn to mark the day.
