World AIDS day: 1 December

November 28, 2018

World AIDS Day is held on 1 December to raise awareness about the issues surrounding HIV and AIDS. 

The 2018 Australian theme for World AIDS Day is: HIV is still here – and it’s on the move.

World AIDS Day aims to:

  • Encourage Australians to educate themselves and others about HIV
  • Take action to reduce the transmission of HIV by promoting prevention strategies
  • Ensure that people living with HIV can participate fully in the life of the community, free from stigma and discrimination.
