Public Health Practice – December 1st is World AIDS Day, a day to show support for those living with HIV, honor those who have died, and unite in our collective efforts against this disease. While remarkable progress has been made in the fight against HIV/AIDS, much work still remains, particularly in sub-populations for whom incidence rates are on the rise.
The College of Public Health encourages you to take time this year on World AIDS Day to learn, celebrate, reflect, and get involved.
