World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV. Do something to mark. December 1st has been recognized as Worlds AIDS Day since 1995 in hopes to make people more aware of how serious the disease is.
In observation of World AIDS Day, a huge red ribbon has been placed on the north entrance to the White House.
“Thanks to President Obama concluding a successful bipartisan effort to end the travel entry ban on people living with HIV, the International AIDS Conference at last returned to the United States for the first time in 22 years,” Solis wrote. “Through our department’s aggressive public education campaign, we inform workers of their rights and employers of their responsibilities under federal law – including that workers cannot be denied employment, harassed or otherwise discriminated against because of their HIV status.”
