It’s World AIDS Day

It’s World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day. This year’s theme is Hands up for #HIVPrevention.

On 30 November, UNAIDS held a special event, Moving Forward Together: Leaving No One Behind, in New York to mark the occasion.

The event honoured United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s legacy and commitment to leaving no one behind in the global response to HIV.
