World AIDS Day has a special place in the history
of the AIDS pandemic. Since 1988 1st December has been a day bringing messages
of compassion, hope, solidarity and understanding about AIDS to every country in
the world, North and South, East and West.
What prompted this extraordinary response? World
AIDS Day emerged from the call by the World Summit of Ministers of Health on
Programmes for AIDS Prevention in January 1988 to open channels of
communication, strengthen the exchange of information and experience, and forge
a spirit of social tolerance. Since then, World AIDS Day has received the
support of the World Health Assembly, the United Nations system, and
governments, communities and individuals around the world. Each year, it is the
only international day of coordinated action against AIDS.
