American Red Cross

World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day which is held on 1 December every year. It is an international day to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS around the world. The first World AIDS Day was celebrated on 1 December 1988. This year’s focus during World AIDS Day is to address the critical need to protect human rights and make HIV prevention, treatment, care and support accessible to all.

Did you know that the local American Red Cross teaches a course about HIV/AIDS Awareness within the community? The class is taught the first Thursday of each month (unless otherwise scheduled) to teach the community about HIV/AIDS and other bloodborn pathogens. Check out our calendar for a list of current trainings.
