World AIDS Day, honored each December 1, encourages public support
for programs that work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and to
raise awareness about HIV/AIDS issues. The first World AIDS Day
was commemorated in 1988 after an international meeting of health
ministers had resulted in an outcry for a greater exchange of HIV/AIDS
This year's World AIDS Day theme, "AIDS--End The Silence:
Listen, Learn, Live!" challenges people around the world to
improve communication with young people in order to halt HIV/AIDS.
