World AIDS Day: History, Facts, and Themes

JawaPos.com – Every year, on December 1, the world celebrates World AIDS Day.

This is a moment to show solidarity with those living with HIV and remember those who have died from AIDS-related illnesses.

The history of World AIDS Day began in 1988 when the World Health Organization (WHO) made it an official global health warning.

The red ribbon, a universal symbol of support for HIV sufferers, was first designed in 1991 by a group of artists as an expression of love and courage.
