TODAY: World AIDS Day 2011 is Dec. 1

November 29, 2011

World AIDS Day is Dec. 1The Dean of Students Office would like to remind the entire UAA community that Dec. 1 is World AIDS Day. This year, the theme is “Aim for Zero.”

ZERO fear. ZERO stigma. ZERO discrimination. ZERO ignorance. ZERO risk. ZERO new HIV infections. And ZERO AIDS-related deaths.

The global HIV response is at a pivotal moment, where huge strides forward are at serious risk and current approaches are reaching their limits. Only one third of the 15 million people living with HIV and in need of life-long treatment are receiving it. New infections continue to outpace the number of people starting treatment, while the upward trend in resources suffered a serious downturn this year.

Be sure to show your support and wear your red ribbon on Dec. 1, or all week.

The Four A’s (Alaska AIDS Assistance Association) will be recognizing World AIDS Day with a night of awareness and a candlelight vigil. Open to all. Learn more at the Four A’s website.
