World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day. According to the CDC, "December 1 is World AIDS Day; a time to celebrate the many lives saved by HIV prevention and treatment programs. It also serves as a reminder that we all must do more—as individuals, communities, and as world citizens—to fight the spread of HIV and AIDS."

Every 12 seconds another person contracts HIV. Want to learn more about the number of people affect by the virus and where they are from? Check out the interactive AIDS Clock.
