It is World Aids Day Today – 23 Free AIDS / HIV Ebooks

Supporters of those with HIV/AIDS and their loved ones who have died from AIDS-related causes gather annually on December 1 for World AIDS Day. Awareness of the fight against HIV is also promoted through the observance. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) causes Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), which can be fatal if left untreated (HIV). The HIV virus compromises the host’s immune system, making the person more susceptible to illness. The day is celebrated by government and health officials, NGOs, and individuals all over the world with the common goal of spreading awareness and knowledge about HIV/AIDS prevention and control.

It can spread through shared activities like drug injection into the bloodstream, sex without the use of a condom or a diaphragm, or from an infected mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding. It can also spread through the use of contaminated syringes for medical purposes.

Along with World Health Day, World Blood Donor Day, World Immunization Week, World Tuberculosis Day, World No Tobacco Day, World Malaria Day, World Hepatitis Day, World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, World Patient Safety Day, and World Chagas Disease Day, World AIDS Day is one of the eleven official global public health campaigns recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).

One of the most significant global public health issues in recorded history, AIDS is estimated to have killed 36.3 million people between 27.2 million and 47.8 million people worldwide as of 2020, and an estimated 37.7 million people are living with HIV. The death rate from the AIDS epidemic has decreased by 64% since its peak in 2004 thanks to recently improved access to antiretroviral treatment in many parts of the world (1.9 million in 2004, compared to 680 000 in 2020).

James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter first established World AIDS Day in August 1988 in an effort to gain some measure of control over the pandemic that had already claimed the lives of so many people. Thomas Netter and James W. Bunn both served as public affairs representatives for the World Health Organization’s AIDS Global Program.

In 2022, “Equalize” will be the theme for World AIDS Day. It serves as a call to action for all of us to pursue the tried and true methods of combating inequality and AIDS. To better serve all people, these include expanding access to and improving the quality of HIV testing, treatment, and prevention services. People living with HIV and other key and marginalized populations face stigma and exclusion due to current laws, policies, and practices, which must be changed so that everyone is treated with dignity and acceptance. Promote information exchange to guarantee everyone has access to cutting-edge HIV research.

Economic, social, cultural, and legal inequalities must be addressed immediately if we are to meet the 2030 deadline (Source) for eliminating AIDS as a global health threat.
