World AIDS Day 2009!!!
This year, World AIDS Day is scheduled for December 1, 2009. This day was created in an attempt to increase awareness about AIDS and to encourage individuals to urge their governments to continue to fight to meet their targets for AIDS, such as delivery of academic and medical aid to regions such as Sub-Saharan Africa, where the disease burden is especially high.
The World AIDS Campaign is an international alliance of national, regional and international civil society groups fighting to aid their governments in abserving their AIDS commitments under the slogan "Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise". The campaign is headed by a group of global constituency-based networks and organized by a team of support staff based in Cape Town, South Africa and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The World AIDS campaign has spread to all the world, including the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, North America, Asia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, North Africa and the MIddle East, and the Western Pacific.
AIDS is a global health issue that affects citizens of all nations, rich and poor, developed and developing, industrialized and non-industrialized. AIDS affects all kinds of people - women, men, men who have sex with men, people who use drugs, and people living with HIV and AIDS. A myriad of grassroots groups contribute to the effort to fight this epidemic, including labour groups, faith-based groups, and even members of the business sector.
