December 1st is internationally recognised as “World Aids Day”. A day to support all people infected and affected by HIV and Aids,support the fight against the disease and raise awareness on related issues and initiatives. It is also the first ever global health day;held for the first time in 1988.
Our responsibility is to always stay informed,and aware in our personal lives,in our workplaces and in our communities. Information is widely available so there isn’t any excuse for ignorance and/or “head in the sand” attitude. Discussing the disease is no longer attached to stigma or fear. That is evident in the unlimited number of small and large scale organisations and people involved in supporting HIV and Aids Education and Awareness.
