World AIDS Day 1st Dec.

World AIDS Day (WAD) takes place annually on 1st December.

2020 marked 32 years of World AIDS Day – a pioneering global health campaign first initiated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 1988.

People around the world unite to show support for people living with and affected by HIV and to remember those who lost their lives to AIDS.

In 2020, the world’s attention has been focused by the COVID-19 pandemic on health and how pandemics affect lives and livelihoods. COVID-19 is showing once again how health is interlinked with other critical issues, such as reducing inequality, human rights, gender equality, social protection and economic growth. With this in mind, this year the theme of World AIDS Day is “Global solidarity, shared responsibility”.
