Tuesday, December 1, 2020, is World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day takes place on December 1 each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
World AIDS Day is an opportunity to show solidarity with the millions of people living with HIV worldwide. Most people do this by wearing an HIV awareness red ribbon on the day. Rocking a red ribbon not only completes any outfit; it shows everyone, especially people living with HIV and their families, your support. Rock the Ribbon
