On this day, people around the world will be remembering those we have lost to AIDS-related illness and showing support for those living with HIV.
Globally, an estimated 36.7 million people have HIV. More than 35 million people have died of HIV or AIDS, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history. World AIDS Day is important because it reminds the public and government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice, and improve education.
All year long, we work to ensure that people with HIV and AIDS live complete and full lives. We’re lawyers. We do our part by lawyering. Please continue to do your part in whatever way you can.
