World AIDS Day is celebrated annually on the 1st December. It'a an opportunity for people around the world to see how connected we are in our fight against HIV, to show our support for people living with HIV and to commemorate those who have died. The first ever global health day, World AIDS Day was founded in 1988.
In honor of the day, David Cameron Leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of England, shared this video message:
Cameron says that while people with HIV can now live as long as those without it, there’s still more work to do. Noting that one fifth of those with the disease in U.K. don’t know that they have HIV, Cameron announced the roll out of a new home testing program and new funding for prevention efforts.
