World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day takes place on the 1st December each year, honoring its 30th year in 2018. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for the estimated 36.7 million people living with HIV, and to honor the more than 35 million those who have died from a AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.

Locally we will honor it’s 30th year by Looking Back and Moving Forward with several FREE public events that all members of the public are invited to attend, November 26-30, 2018.

Please use hashtag #WADSV when posting or sharing your story, photos or experiences on social media.
