World AIDS Day Logo“Leading with Science. United for Action.” is the U.S. Government theme for World AIDS Day 2011. This year, we are thankful for scientific advances in the response to HIV/AIDS, leading Secretary Clinton to call for an “AIDS-free generation.” Creating an AIDS-free generation has never been a policy priority for the U.S. Government until now, because this goal would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. Secretary Clinton’s call echoes the historic charge of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

On December 1st, people all around the world will commemorate World AIDS Day. We will think about how far we have come in the last 30 years and we at AIDS.gov want everyone to get involved.

What can you do?

  1. Watch and share Secretary Hillary Clinton’s historic speech on HIV/AIDS which calls for an  “AIDS Free Generation.”
  2. Plan a community event and/or take a photo for Facing AIDS. Share your message of why we all need to step up and face AIDS together.
  3. Print posters and tools from our World AIDS Day resources and use them at your events. Many are customizable and in English and Spanish.
  4. Locate HIV testing and other HIV services: Use and share the HIV/AIDS Prevention & Service Providers Locator and add the widget to your website or blog.
  5. Learn about and share the National HIV/AIDS Strategy. Read about agencies who are putting the strategy in action and talk about it with your colleagues — what would it take to make the goals of the Strategy real in your community?
  6. Follow our AIDS.gov blogs and tweets Exit Disclaimer from guest blogs from the CDC and other Federal partners.
  7. Use the hashtag #WAD11 Exit Disclaimer when sharing your thoughts on Twitter or Facebook.

We are all united together to take at least one small action to commemorate World AIDS Day. What are you doing in your community?

  4. We must educate the public about HIV/AIDS, because is very important for every body and especially youth to know how to prevent this and is also important for people to know their status.

    Here at The Meadows treatment center we encounter many patients who find out they are HIV/AIDS positive . Its our job to encourage safe sex and to assit and comfort those who fall victim to these often deadly social dieases. Working at this facilities extended care for sex addicts as a Behaviorial Tech is sometimes very challenging .
