Observed worldwide on the first of December since 1998, World AIDS Day is a time when millions of people come together to commemorate people who have lost their lives to HIV and look for ways to make progress in responding to the epidemic and recommit to ending the scourge.

AIDS remains the leading cause of death among Black women between ages 25 and 34 in the U.S., and it is second-leading cause of death for Black men 35-44. The theme for 2012 is “Getting to Zero – Working Together for an AIDS-Free Generation.” Here are some things individuals can do to commemorate World AIDS Day: Get educated.
