World Aids Day

We’re supporting World AIDS Day again for 2015. Our affiliates around the world will be marking the day with a host of awareness events, seminars, film screenings and much more.  Start planning your activities now with ourWorld AIDS Day campaign materials. Let’s make 2015 the best year yet.

A look back at World AIDS Day 2014

The ITF called on its affiliates to mark World AIDS Day on 1 December 2014. As we marked 33 years of AIDS, we did not forget that, for all the achievements, HIV/AIDS is still around us. We saw 2 million new infections in 2014. We are still seeing stigma and discrimination in society and in workplaces. We are fighting for a future when people are motivated to come out to live and work positively and be an AIDS activist.

Keeping in mind the World AIDS Day theme for 2011-2015, we must get to zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths.

This year we continue our campaign on ‘zero new infections’, which will result in zero stigma and discrimination.
