December 1 is World AIDS Day. On this important day wearing a red ribbon signifies support of those living with HIV and remembrance of those lost to AIDS. Wearing a red ribbon will show you care about the issue of HIV/AIDS in your community as well as world wide.
World AIDS Day was first observed December 1, 1988. It was conceived by public information officers for the Global Program on AIDS at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland (now known as UNAIDS.)
