December 1st. WORLD AIDS DAY

World AIDS Day is commemorated around the globe on 1 December. It celebrates progress made in the battle against the epidemic and brings into focus remaining challenges.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the first World AIDS Day in 1988. The day, 1 December, quickly became established as one of the worlds most successful commemorative days and is now recognized and celebrated by a diverse range of constituents every year around the globe.

Then, in 1997, recognizing the need for year-round campaign activity for HIV and AIDS, UNAIDS launched the first year-long World AIDS Campaign.

World AIDS Day 2004 focuses on women, girls, and HIV and AIDS - the theme for the World AIDS Campaign 2004-.

On the occasion of World AIDS Day, UNAIDS released the "AIDS Epidemic Update 2004" on 23 November. With maps and regional summaries, the 2004 edition provides the most recent estimates of the epidemics scope and human toll, explores new trends in the epidemics evolution, and features a special section on women and AIDS.
