World AIDS Day 2021: End Inequities, End AIDS, End Pandemics
Held on December 1st of each year, World AIDS Day is an international day of awareness dedicated to issues impacting those living with AIDS and remembering those who passed away due to AIDS-related illnesses.
This year, the global theme for World AIDS Day is End Inequities. End AIDS. End Pandemics.

"World AIDS Day has always been important to me because it's a reminder to the general public and our government that HIV has not gone away. We have the opportunity to highlight that there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice, and improve education." - Khafre Kujichagulia Abif, H-I-V.net Advocate
The history of HIV/AIDS advocacy
We rely on long-term survivors to teach us about the history of World AIDS Day and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. On World AIDS Day, we honor the hard work, sacrifices, and advocacy of those living with HIV.
