World Aids Awareness Day was created in 1988 by the United Nations World Health Organization.

World Aids Awareness Day is today. This day is noted around the world, by fundraisers and educational programs, and events.

HIV/AIDS is one of the worlds biggest medical crises. It is estimated that approximately 40 million people in the world currently have aids. One million of them, are in the United States. Each year, over 40,000 new cases are reported in the U.S.

On this day, there are a number of things you can do. They include:

- Learn more about HIV/AIDs.

- Promote education about this disease, and protection against it.

- Help people with AIDS.

- Donate to the fight to end this disease.

World Aids Awareness Day

All the World AIDS Day campaigns focus on a specific theme, chosen following consultations with UNAIDS, WHO and a large number of grassroots, national and international agencies involved in the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS. As of 2008, each year's theme is chosen by the Global Steering Committee of the World AIDS Campaign (WAC).

For each World AIDS Day from 2005 through 2010, the theme was "Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise", designed to encourage political leaders to keep their commitment to achieve universal access to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support by the year 2010.

As of 2012, the multi-year theme for World AIDS Day is "Getting to Zero: Zero new HIV infections. Zero deaths from AIDS-related illness. Zero discrimination."[20] The US Federal theme for the year 2014 is "Focus, Partner, Achieve: An AIDS-Free Generation".

World Aids Awareness Day

The themes are not limited to a single day but are used year-round in international efforts to highlight HIV/AIDS awareness within the context of other major global events including the G8 Summit, as well as local campaigns like the Student Stop AIDS Campaign in the UK.

Please do what you can to support the fight against HIV/AIDS.
