World AIDS Day

DATE:  Friday, December 1, 2017
LOCATIONWarren United Methodist Church
1800 Orchid St., Lake Charles, LA 70601


 World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988, dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV.  Government and health officials, non-profit organizations and individuals universally observe the day, often with education on HIV prevention and control.
World AIDS day is held on December 1st of each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for the millions of people around the world living with HIV, and to commemorate people who have died.  Wearing a red ribbon is one simple way to do this.
