World AIDS Day

Each year, World AIDS Day is observed on December 1. This year's theme is "Have You Heard Me Today? Women, Girls, HIV and AIDS." About half of the people living with HIV are female. Globally women and girls are becoming infected with HIV at a faster rate than men and boys. A new United Nations report says, "Despite this alarming trend, women know less than men about how HIV/AIDS is transmitted and how to prevent infection, and what little they do know is often rendered useless by the discrimination and violence they face."

In order for HIV to be effectively tackled on an international level, efforts need to be made to

End the discrimination against people with HIV and AIDS.

Educate people in safer sex and drug use, using appropriate media.

Provide condoms freely to people in the developing world.

Provide financial and medical assistance so that people with HIV and AIDS can be treated.
