World AIDS Day takes place on the 1st December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day. (See www.worldaidsday.org/ ). The Adventist church has a ministry aimed at ministering to those with HIV/AIDS in Africa.
