World AIDS Day Resources

GLAAD's list of resources providing information and ways to participate in World AIDS Day.

World AIDS Day has been observed on December 1 every year since 1988, with the purpose of honoring and remembering the millions who have been lost to the epidemic and to bring attention to HIV/AIDS and those currently living with it.

When it was created, World AIDS Day became the first-ever health day to be commemorated worldwide, providing an important opportunity for the global community to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS. This year’s theme is “Getting to Zero: Zero New HIV Infections. Zero Discrimination. Zero AIDS-Related Deaths.”

There are numerous ways to get involved with World AIDS Day this year, by learning the facts and putting the knowledge into action. Another way to show support for those living with HIV/AIDS is by wearing the signature red ribbon on December 1. You can find out more about World Aids Day at www.worldaidsday.org.
