World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
We’re disappointed we can’t be together in person this year to commemorate the 32nd World AIDS Day. But we’re partnering virtually with our friends to bring you different opportunities to honor the day.
