December 1st is World AIDS Day. This day is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a life-threatening condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The HIV virus attacks the immune system of the patient and reduces its ability to resist other diseases.

AIDS has killed more than 37 million people worldwide, and an estimated 37.7 million people are living with HIV today.

Currently, there’s no cure for HIV/AIDS, however, treatment is available to reduce the symptoms of patients and prevent complications. Thanks to improved access to antiretroviral treatment in many regions of the world, the death rate from the AIDS epidemic has decreased by 64% since its peak in 2004.
