Commemorating World AIDS Day - December 1, 2012
November 29, 2012
World AIDS Day is on December 1, 2012. It
brings together people from around the world to raise awareness
about HIV/AIDS. Leading up to this annual observance is
the Canadian HIV/AIDS Awareness Week (November 24 – December 1).
Communities from across the country will be hosting events
and/or activities to commemorate the importance behind the day.
The goal – to increase awareness on the continued struggles as
well as to highlight the perpetual hope for a cure. It is
a demonstration of international solidarity in the face of this
pandemic. World AIDS Day is also an opportunity for public
and private partners to advocate and shepherd continued progress
in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care for people living
with the disease around the world.
World AIDS Day is dedicated to the memories of
those who have lost their battle to the disease but also to
honour those who continue to live with it. The day also
celebrates the amount of progress already achieved in the global
response to HIV/AIDS.
