World Aids Day Awareness

This upcoming Saturday (December 1st) is World Aids Day. This day represents the opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against the HIV/AIDS virus and to remember those we’ve lost to the disease. The international theme for World AIDS Day 2011 – 2015 is “Getting to zero: zero new HIV infections. However, locally our theme for World Aids Day is “I am My Brother’s/Sister’s keeper: Fight HIV/AIDS”. All around the world people will be participating in various events that raise awareness about HIV/AIDS.
