World AIDS Day
1 December 2007
Each day 14,000 people - half of them between the ages of 15 and 24 - are newly infected. In most countries there are no legal protections for HIV-positive people or their loved ones and they are regularly discriminated against and marginalized. This year's World AIDS Day campaign is focused on breaking the silence on this issue and confronting the discrimination around us. Help us fight fear, shame, ignorance and injustice worldwide! There are now 40 million people living with HIV/AIDS throughout the world, with more than 25 million people in sub-Saharan Africa infected.
