World AIDS Day takes place on December 1 each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. HIV and AIDS-related illnesses impact individuals across identities and experiences. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first-ever global health day.
