HRC Honors World AIDS Day Today
December 1, 2011 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
World AIDS Day, first held on December 1, 1988, is an opportunity for people to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Thirty years ago the first cases of HIV and AIDS were reported in the U.S., according to FacingAIDS.gov. In 2010 the Joint National Program on HIV/AIDS reported 34 million people were living with HIV. Though there has been progress over the years in the fight to end the global crisis, there remains much to be done.
Today, let us not only take a moment to reflect on the devastating impact of the crisis, but also look toward a future free of HIV/AIDS. Join HRC members and supporters who are showing their support for loved ones who have been touched by HIV/AIDS.
