Today is World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day is one of the most recognized health awareness days across the globe. The commemoration began in 1988 by the International AIDS Society at the international AIDS Conference.
AIDS (Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome) is the final stage of HIV, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. It is a great breakdown of the immune system, putting the body at risk for opportunistic infections, arising because of a weakened immune system.
The World AIDS Campaign regularly takes on the initiative to spread awareness about the disease and increase research as much as possible. Informed by those most affected by HIV, the World AIDS Campaign’s goal is to ensure that governments and policy makers meet the HIV targets they set, the commitments they made, and mobilize the necessary resources for a world where people do not die of AIDS and opportunistic infections.
