December 1st - World AIDS Day

The 1st of December , World AIDs Days, is the day when individuals and organisationsfrom around the world come together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic.

2008 marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day.

Here are the official site of World AIDS Days 2008

Base on Statistics on 1 Aug2008 , the number of people living with HIV has risen from around 8 m in 1990 to 33 m today, and is still growing. Around 67% of people living with HIV are in Sub-Saharan Africa.



Again just for those people who asking what is HIV.
It stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. After a period of time
this virus damages the immune system, and this causes a variety of
symptoms known as AIDS.
This time period varies, depending on factors such as access to AIDS
drugs, and possibly such factors as nutrition, the presence of other
medical conditions, and stress. In the absence of treatment, the
average time between HIV infection and progression to AIDS is around
ten years.
So it mean that person who infect by AIDS will going to struggle at most 10 years...:(
