World AIDS Day 2014

World AIDS Day 2014, 1 December, is an opportunity to harness the power of social change to put people first and close the access gap. Ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 is possible, but only by closing the gap between people who have access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services and people who are being left behind. Closing the gap means empowering and enabling all people, everywhere, to access the services they need.

HIV continues to be a major global public health issue, having claimed more than 39 million lives so far. Another 35 million people are living with HIV. Most of them are outcasted by the society and living in terrible condition due to stigma and discrimination.
