About the campaign
We’re supporting World AIDS Day again this year. Our affiliates around the world will be marking the day with a host of awareness events, seminars, film screenings and more. Start planning your activities now with our World AIDS Day campaign materials. Let’s make 2014 the best year yet.
A look back at World AIDS Day 2014
The ITF called on its affiliates to mark World AIDS Day on 1 December 2013. As we marked 33 years of AIDS, we did not forget that, for all the achievements, HIV/AIDS is still around us. We saw 2.5 million new infections in 2012. We are still seeing stigma and discrimination in society and in workplaces. We are fighting for a future when people are motivated to come out to live and work positively and be an AIDS activist.
Keeping in mind the World AIDS Day theme for 2011-2015, we must get to zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths.
In 2013, as in the past few years, we continued our campaign on ‘zero new infections and zero discrimination’. We encouraged everyone to be a ‘change agent’ – start the plan from now, develop networks and collaborate with local and national organisations to add momentum and achieve our objective of ‘getting to zero’.
