aids-um-global-aids-logoMore than three decades ago, the first known cases of HIV/AIDS sparked an epidemic in the United States, ushering in a time defined by how little we knew about it and in which those affected by it faced fear and stigmatization. 36.7 Million people worldwide are currently living with HIV/AIDS including 1.8 Million Children.World AIDS Day, observed each year on December 1, provides an opportunity for people around the world to unite in the fight against HIV and AIDS and to show their compassion and support to those living with the disease. It reminds the public and Government that HIV has not gone away. There is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.
