Every year we celebrate World AIDS Day on 1st December to raise public awareness among people. AIDS which stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is caused by Human Immunodeficiency Syndrome infection. We started celebrating World AIDS Day from the year 1988 to support the people who are fighting with the HIV infection. On this day many NGO’s and governmental organisations organise events and campaigns all over the world to educate people on how to prevent and control AIDS. World AIDS Day Slogans are shared among volunteers.

It is important to note that HIV infection is not transmitted if a person is exposed to tears, nasal secretion, faeces, sweat, sputum or urine unless contaminated blood is present.
