World AIDS Day – December 1, 2022

World AIDS Day, first observed in 1988, is held annually on December 1. World AIDS Day is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic and mourning those who have died as a result of the disease. Since 1981, an estimated 40 million people have died from AIDS, and an estimated 37 million are living with HIV, making it one of the most serious global public health concerns in recorded history. Despite recent advances in medicine, the AIDS pandemic continues to take an estimated two million lives each year, with more than 250,000 of them being children.

The day provides an opportunity for people all around the globe to unite in the battle against HIV and stand in solidarity with those who are infected, as well as mourn those who have died as a result of the disease.

HOW TO OBSERVE WORLD AIDS DAY. Just a small step!

  1. The most well-known way to express your support on World AIDS Day is to wear a red ribbon on your lapel. The colour red represents blood and the suffering produced by the disease.
  2. Make a donation to an AIDS charity. (In Sub-Saharan Africa, where adult HIV prevalence has reached one in every twenty individuals and 1.2 million people die from HIV/AIDS each year.)
  3. Participate in a candlelight vigil.
