1 December – World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day, observed December 1 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the global AIDS epidemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. December 1 was chosen because the first case of AIDS was diagnosed on this day in 1981. Since then, AIDS has killed more than 25 million people, making it one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history.

The concept of a World AIDS Day originated at the 1988 World Summit of Ministers of Health on Programmes for AIDS Prevention. Since then, it has been taken up by governments, international organizations and charities around the world.

The day, 1 December, quickly became established as one of the world's most successful commemorative days around the globe.

The World AIDS Campaign 2004 seeks to address the way women's inequality helps fuel the transmission of HIV and increases the impact of AIDS. Campaign posters have been developed to give a voice to women facing the challenges of gender inequality in the face of HIV and AIDS.

The campaign's slogan “Have you heard me today?“ calls for action against the inequalities that not only put women and girls at risk but whole communities.
