World AIDS Day

On December 1, 2014, the world will recognize World AIDS Day. On World AIDS Day, we pay tribute to the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States and around the world, and the millions of people who have been tested for HIV. Much work still needs to be done but, today, new scientific knowledge combined with proven success in implementing prevention, care and treatment interventions provides the opportunity to touch the lives of millions of people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide.
