It is bad enough that people are dying of AIDS, but no one should die of ignorance.
As the first of December, today is also World AIDS Day, an opportunity for people all over the world to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. As the first ever global health day, World AIDS Day promotes learning the facts about this destructive pandemic, and putting that knowledge into action. Although this is a day to advocate for AIDS awareness, it is important to remember that the fight against this disease never stops. (Source: http://www.worldaidsday.org/)
