The concept of a World AIDS Day originated at the 1988 World Summit of Ministers of Health on Programmes for AIDS Prevention. Since then, it has been taken up by governments, international organizations and charities around the world.
For APO, every day is world AIDS day, however on December 1st each year, we join forces with the rest of the world to raise awareness, celebrate life, and remember those who have died from this pandemic.
