On December 1st, 2017 the world celebrated, honored, held events, and stood in solidarity for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

World AIDS Day is held on the 1st of December each year and it is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against AIDS/HIV, show their support for people living with AIDS/HIV and to commemorate people who have died.

World AIDS Day was first conceived in August 1987 by James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter, two public information officers for the Global Programme on AIDS at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. Bunn and Netter took their idea to Dr. Jonathan Mann, Director of the Global Programme on AIDS (now known as UNAIDS). Dr. Mann liked the concept, approved it, and agreed with the recommendation that the first observance of World AIDS Day should be on 1 December 1988.

Although the world has progressed in the fight against HIV/AIDS. We as a global community still have a long way to go.  Our global communities continue to fight against the stigma, discrimination, treatment, and prevention. Lest we forget.  1448968589172[1]
