World AIDS Day 2018

December 1st was World AIDS Day. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day designed to raise awareness and support of HIV. AIDS isn’t a disease we hear about every day anymore, yet every year in the U.S 38,739 people are newly diagnosed with HIV, there are an estimated 36.7 million cases world wide, and most of these people fall between the ages of 20-29.

World Aids Day is an opportunity to remember those whose lives were taken by the disease and support those who are currently living with HIV. Despite improvements made in treatment and education there is still a great need to raise money in order to continue improving treatment, education and awareness of HIV/AIDS.
