Pennsylvania: Accomplishments, Frustrations Recalled Here on World AIDS Day
December 2, 2011
Pittsburgh marked World AIDS Day Thursday by lighting a number of local landmarks in red, as activists handed out AIDS awareness ribbons, performed in a red-shirted flash mob, and offered free HIV testing. "Today, 30 years after the first AIDS cases were reported, we are grateful for the strides that have been made to keep people living longer, but frustrated that no cure has been found," said Mayor Luke Ravenstahl.
