World AIDS Day is an opportunity to show solidarity with the millions of people living with HIV worldwide, and to commemorate those who have died from it.

The AIDS crisis is not over

According to National AIDS Trust Statistics, there are an estimated 36.7 million people globally who have the HIV virus. The research revolving the virus has evolved significantly since it was first identified in the 1980s. However, HIV is still greatly misunderstood. World AIDS Day comes as a reminder to fight stigma, fight ignorance, fight AIDS.

Get Involved

The first thing you need to do to get involved is educating yourself on the subject. Next thing would be raising awareness of the resistance in AIDS. A great way to do that is by wearing a red ribbon- the universal symbol of awareness and support for people living with HIV.
If you have the ability, you can donate to the cause. There are many associations that were founded to champion the rights of people living with HIV, you can donate to one of these here https://www.nowdonate.com/checkout/27r982gmic0b31oj2v0z.
You can find more ways to get involved such as fundraising and attending an event here, https://www.worldaidsday.org/.
