World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day is a day to reflect on the impact of the HIV epidemic and to take action to raise awareness in the community about issues related to HIV. Each year there are both local and global themes around which to organise events and actions.

Between 2011-2015, World AIDS Days will have the theme of "Getting to zero: zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS related deaths", reflecting the UN goals for reducing HIV transmissions by 2015.
