World AIDS Day: Getting to Zero!

Every year on December 1st, world communities unite in the fight against HIV/ AIDS. On this special day, we unite and show our support for those living with HIV/ AIDS and pay tribute to individuals who have died from this disease. Though countless medical advancements have been made to end this pandemic, approximately 25 million lives have been lost since 1981. Globally, roughly 34 million people are living with HIV/AIDS. Sadly, the incidences of new cases are on the rise. So, what can you do on World AIDS Day?
