World AIDS Day - 1 Dec. 1997

In conjunction with the above, todays article will be focusing on HIV and AIDs links on the Internet.

World AIDS Day, observed each December 1, is designed to encourage public support for programs to prevent the spread of HIV and provide education and awareness of issues surrounding HIV/AIDS. It was observed for the first time in 1988 after a meeting of health ministers from around the world calling for greater exchange of information on HIV/AIDS.

This year's World AIDS Day theme is"Give Children Hope in a World with AIDS." It challenges people around the world to contemplate the long-term repercussions of the AIDS pandemic, without losing sight that AIDS affects everyone.

World AIDS Day is organized by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), a partnership of six United Nations (UN) agencies that was created in 1996. The American Association for World Health, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Pan American Health Organization , and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, coordinates efforts for World AIDS Day in the United States.
