World AIDS Day!

World AIDS Day! Today, 1 December, the whole world is honoring those infected and affected with HIV/AIDS, along with those who have passed away. Since 1981, the disease has afflicted millions of people all over the world.

Today there are 65 million people in the world who live with AIDS. There have been 25 million deaths. The numbers are staggering. One adult in a hundred in the world is living with HIV. In parts of Africa, it is one in three.

People around the world continue to fight about how to prevent AIDS -- self-denial still wins over condoms, needle exchange is still forbidden in many places, homophobia and sexism still keep people from being able to protect themselves.

"Stop AIDS!. Keep the Promise!."

Get educated and spread the message!..
