World AIDS DAY 2019 -- Communities Make the Difference

World AIDS DAY 2019 -- Communities Make the Difference

This year to mark December 1, World AIDS Day, the World Health Organization is highlighting the difference communities are making to end the HIV epidemic.  Among their key messages, they stress the importance of community and civil society engagement, acknowledging that activism and civil society action have been key resources in the HIV response from the early days, inspiring the global health community to galvanize efforts for increased equity, respect for health and human rights, and scientific innovation.

To raise public awareness on World AIDS Day, the World Health Organization has prepared a wealth of clear and informative HIV/AIDS facts and figures, as well as specific policy recommendations. There is plenty to learn about the current successes and ongoing challenges in the global response to HIV/AIDS. Take some time on this World AIDS Day to learn more by clicking here.
