World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day is observed on 1 December every year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV and remember that challenges to achieve a world without AIDS still persist and that, together, we can overcome those challenges.
This year many UNDP offices across the world are organizing events to commemorate World AIDS Day together with national governments and civil society organizations.
United Nations Secretary General, UNDP's Administrator and UNAIDS' Executive Director have also put out statements listing significant achievements and also reminding us about remaining challenges to reverse and stop HIV:
