WHY: December 1st is World AIDS Day, the one day each year that the world sets aside
to honor all the people whose lives have been touched by AIDS. This year’s
theme is Coming of Age With AIDS.
It is a day of reflection and appreciation of those who have died, those who are
fighting to survive, the caregivers, and those who are finding new treatments and
cures. World AIDS Day is also an opportunity for those who grieve with loss to
find hope, remembrance and renewal.
