Facing AIDS on World AIDS Day, December 1

red ribbonToday, December 1st,  is World AIDS Day. This day provides an opportunity to reflect on the HIV epidemic in our country and around the world. In the U.S., an estimated 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV ─ and one out of five does not know it. Worldwide, there are an estimated 33 million individuals with HIV. AIDS.gov (http://aids.gov/) encourages everyone to take action in Facing AIDS for World AIDS Day by promoting information about HIV/AIDS, encouraging people to tell their personal stories, and promoting HIV testing.
