Today is World AIDS Day 2008. From the World AIDS Campaign’s website:
The 1st of December, World AIDS Day, is the day when individuals and organisations from around the world come together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic. 2008 marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day. Whilst we have come a long ways since 1988, there is still much more to be done.
For more information events commeorating the day, visit the World AIDS Campaign’s website (which is in need of an overhaul—the calendar of events is hard to navigate).
