World AIDS Day takes place each year on December 1st. The annual observation is held to bring attention to the global impact of HIV/AIDS. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that an approximate 1.1 million people are living with HIV and 1 in 7 don’t know it. More than 36 million people around the world are estimated to be living with HIV.
The theme for 2018 is Saving Lives through Leadership and Partnerships. You can keep up with World AIDS Day on Social Media by following #WAD2018.
