World AIDS Day 

World AIDS Day takes place on December 1. Despite global progress in reducing new HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths, the fight against HIV is far from over.

In the United States, more than one million people are estimated to be living with HIV infection or AIDS. Health experts estimate that one in seven of these people are unaware of their infection. 

Residents can make a difference in the weeks following World AIDS Day by learning the facts about HIV, getting tested, and talking with family and friends to reduce the stigma and homophobia that prevent so many from seeking help.
