Wold Aids Day, December 1st
Every December 1, BCPS and its partners observe World AIDS Day to raise awareness of the global impact of HIV/AIDS. An estimated 1.1 million people are living with HIV in the United States. Of those, as many as 1 in 5 people are unaware of their HIV infection. We encourage HIV testing, because finding new HIV infections means people can get lifesaving treatment and can take steps to protect their loved ones from being infected. On World AIDS Day, we pay tribute to the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS in the United States and around the world, and the millions of people who have been tested for HIV. Find a FREE testing site near you.
Utilize BCPS’s World AIDS Day Suggested Activities in your elementary, middle or high classrooms help raise awareness now.
