It's an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.
Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
Today over 105,000 people live with HIV in the UK. Yet the recent research by National AIDS Trust found 63% of the public do not remember seeing or hearing about HIV in the past 6 months. Only a third said they have sympathy for people living with HIV regardless of how they acquired it.
