Held on the 1st of December every year, World AIDS Day raises awareness across the globe about the issues of HIV and AIDS. At a time when we are experiencing a global pandemic, is it important now more than ever to reflect on the diseases of the past so that we can prepare for the future.
The 2020 World AIDS Day theme in Australia is ‘Now More Than Ever’. World AIDS Day aims to encourage Australians to educate themselves and others about HIV, to take action to reduce the transmission of HIV by promoting prevention strategies, and to ensure that people living with HIV can participate fully in the life of the community – free from stigma and discrimination.
According to World AIDS Day Australia, as communities and individuals, there is a lot we can do in relation to HIV. Working in partnership with people with HIV, we can encourage others to understand how HIV is transmitted. We can support people to access testing, treatment and care, as we know that commencing treatment at the early stages of HIV results in better health outcomes and reduces the likelihood of onward transmission.
UNAIDS’s theme for World AIDS Day 2020 is ‘Global Solidarity, Shared Responsibility’. As part of UNAIDS’s Sustainable Development Goals, it aims to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030. The focus of UNAIDS is on stopping new HIV infections, ensuring that everyone living with HIV has access to HIV treatment, protecting and promoting human rights and producing data for decision-making.
Show your support for people with HIV on World AIDS Day by wearing a red ribbon, the international symbol of HIV awareness and support.
