AIDS Services Center Coalition, Inc., an umbrella organization of
HIV/AIDS service providers in Louisville and Southern Indiana, is
collaborating with community partners to organize a week of local programs
to commemorate World AIDS Day, December 1st, 2012. We invite
you to take part. Together we can educate, motivate, and mobilize against
Started in 1988, World AIDS Day is designed to focus attention on the critical issues of HIV/AIDS. It is commemorated around the world on December 1st. Three decades after the virus was first diagnosed, World AIDS Day 2012 is a call to action to support the over 34 million people people living with HIV/AIDS across the globe and an opportunity to honor the nearly 30 million lives lost to this devastating pandemic. One day a year, we are not separated by agencies, politics, governments or geography. We are united together. This day we gather to raise public awareness, fight discrimination and strengthen, our commitment. This day we advocate for people who are living with HIV/AIDS. This day we honor our brothers and sisters who have died from the disease.
“Out of Sight, Out of Mind” - the red ribbon is the international symbol of AIDS awareness. Wear a red ribbon on December 1st as a reminder that the AIDS crisis is not over.
