                                                  of World AIDS Day on 1 December 2008
                                World AIDS Day gives us the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to take action
                                on HIV/AIDS. It also provides an opportunity to share our knowledge: to help women,
                                men and young people to know how to prevent HIV transmission; know where to
                                access treatment, care and support; and know their rights, including how to protect
                                themselves against discrimination.
                                The UN family, diplomatic missions, associations of people living with HIV, humanitarian
                                organizations, faith communities, and other NGOs, as well as staff members and their
