World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day

1st December

World AIDS Day is held on 1st December each year.  It raises awareness across the world and in the community about HIV and AIDS.  It is a day for the community to show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died of AIDS related illnesses.

As a community and as individuals, there is a lot we can do in relation to HIV. Working in partnership with people with HIV, we can encourage others to understand how HIV is transmitted.  We can support people to access testing, treatment and care, as we know that commencing treatment at the early stages of HIV results in better health outcomes and reduces the likelihood of onwards transmission.

Show your support for people with HIV on World AIDS Day by wearing a red ribbon, the international symbol of HIV awareness and support.
