Today, December 1st, is World AIDS Day 2021

December 1 marks World AIDS Day, a day for the community and the world to support people living with HIV and raise awareness about the virus. UNAIDS said HIV infections are following lines of inequality and are not falling fast enough to stop the pandemic, as 1.5 million new HIV infections were reported in 2020. “It is still possible to end the epidemic by 2030,” United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres affirmed. “But that will require stepped-up action and greater solidarity. To beat AIDS —and build resilience against the pandemics of tomorrow—we need collective action.”
