World AIDS Day is observed every 1st of December. It is a day dedicated to spreading awareness about the dreadful Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome ( AIDS ).
The theme of this year’s World AIDS Day is “Right to health”. The World Health Organization highlights the need for all 36.7 million people living with HIV and those who are vulnerable and affected by the epidemic, to reach the goal of universal health coverage.
Today, we join the World Health Organization ( WHO ), United Nations ( UN ) and other global organizations to campaign for global public health.
We also remember those who have lost their lives to the disease and commiserate with those that have lost friends, colleagues and family members.
The battle against this disease is not a one-man fight but a collective battle to reduce its effect to the barest minimum.
Whether we like it or not, we all share a common destiny, and as such must contribute our quota to securing and creating a safe and healthy society that we can all be proud of.
