Today, December 1st is World AIDS Day. Today is the to bring awareness to those who have died from this horrendous disease and to celebrate our accomplishments, such as increased access to treatment and prevention services.

Even today many people do not know the real facts on how to protect themselves and others from HIV or about the discrimination that remain a reality for many people infected with HIV.

What's the theme for World AIDS Day this year?

"Getting to Zero

This year we focus on achieving 3 things: 

1. Zero new HIV infections. 

2. Zero discrimination. 

3. Zero AIDS-related deaths.

Although it sounds very difficult but if we join hands together, we can achive it.
