“Health is a human right. Health must be a top investment priority to achieve universal health coverage. On this World AIDS Day let us recognize that, to overcome COVID-19 and end AIDS, the world must stand in solidarity and share responsibility." United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres
Every year, on 1 December, the world commemorates World AIDS Day. It is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Significant progress has been made in the AIDS response since 1988, and today three in four people living with HIV know their status.
