About World AIDS Day 

World AIDS Day began globally on December 1, 1988, as a means to raise funds, increase awareness, fight prejudice, and promote education related to HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. Since then the event has grown and is honored by governments, schools, businesses, and individuals around the world.  At UC San Diego, the goal of World AIDS Day programming is to provide a forum for reflection, education, and action. We hope to engage our community in an ongoing dialogue that encourages each individual to be educated and take action to stop AIDS.
