World Aids Day is today

The calendar reads December 1st and aside from being only 24 days till Christmas and 30 days till the New Year it is World Aids Day. Yes it’s one day a year that world brings attention to HIV & AIDS.

This year should be not only a reminder but hopefully bring more attention to a subject that has somewhat swept under the rug. Yes it appears that in the past decade or so HIV/AIDS has faded out a bit as far as awareness and perception to the disease.

The introduction of protease inhibitors in the late 1990’s became the first time that those infected may have some hope. We should take today and truly relaunch the very meaning of World Aids Day and find ways to bring awareness back into peoples mind.
