World AIDS Day - 1 December

                                                                    World AIDS Day
                                                                                1 December

                    In 1988, the General Assembly expressed deep concern at the pandemic proportions of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Noting that the World Health Organization had declared 1 December 1988 World AIDS Day, the Assembly stressed the importance of observing that occasion (resolution 43/15). Today, over 41 million people are living with HIV/AIDS. To combat HIV/AIDS , malaria and other diseases is one of the Millennium Development Goals which all 191 United Nations Member States have pledged to meet by the year 2015.
The World AIDS Campaign (WAC) has chosen as its theme from 2005 to 2010:
“Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise.”
