World AIDS Day - December 1, 1999
"AIDS--End The Silence: Listen, Learn, Live!"

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 information.

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.
