December 1 | World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day is a global initiative to raise awareness, fight prejudice, and improve education about HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. World AIDS Day is December 1.

Around the world, about 37 million people are living with HIV. In the United States, about 38,500 people get infected with HIV every year.

The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. It’s important that everyone ages 15 to 65 gets tested for HIV at least once. Some people may need to get tested more often.

How can World AIDS Day make a difference?

We can use this day to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, encourage people to get tested, and take action to support people living with HIV.

Here are just a few ideas:

  • Encourage people to get tested for HIV. Let them know that some health clinics offer free HIV testing.
  • Talk to parents about teaching their kids the basics of safe sex.
  • Wear a red ribbon, the symbol of HIV awareness and support. Tell people why you are wearing it. You can order a red ribbon onlineExternal Link: You are leaving healthfinder.gov — or make your own.
