World AIDS Day is designated on 1 December every year since 1988. It is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection, and mourning those who have died of the disease. Government and health officials, non-governmental organizations and individuals around the world observe the day, often with education on AIDS prevention and control.
 
 
“Everybody counts”, is the slogan for this year’s World AIDS Day. WHO is advocating for access to safe, effective, quality and affordable HIV services, medicines, diagnostics other health commodities for all people who need them. UHC means that all people receive the health services they need without experiencing financial hardship, including access to the full range of HIV services.
