World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day is observed every 1st day of December every year. The idea started in August 1987 by James Bunn and Thomas Netter of World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland and then their idea was approved by Dr.Jonathan Mann, Director of UNAIDS. Then they agreed that the first observance of World AIDS Day should be December 1, 1988.

World AIDS day is observed to increase awareness and raise funds to fight HIV and AIDS. Every year, UNAIDS select an annual theme for the celebration. The theme for World AIDS Day 2011 is "Getting to Zero". The Global community is dedicated on achieving 3 main targets:

1. Zero new HIV infections.
2. Zero discrimination.
3. Zero AIDS-related deaths"


December is also chosen as AIDS Awareness Month.
