Today Is World AIDS Day
December 1, 2011
Thirty years into the HIV/AIDS Pandemic, we commemorate the work we've done, the people we've lost, the successes and the challenges ahead of us as we continue to fight HIV and its affects on our communities and our world.
This year's theme, Getting to Zero, is important because we'll never wipe out the epidemic if we don't stop its transmission from person to person. Prevention is key to ending this disease, but it's also only half the picture.
A few quick statistics:
Iris House has a number of testing and outreach events this week, a list is below. For a list of citywide commemorations, check out the Gay City News article.
