World AIDS Day is recognized on December 1st, and is a global occasion of unity, bringing together people worldwide impacted by HIV. It serves as a day for individuals to come together, share their experiences, commemorate those we’ve lost, and stand in solidarity against HIV. Despite significant progress in the four decades since the first recorded cases of AIDS, this disease still poses a substantial public health challenge. World AIDS Day provides a chance for communities and individuals everywhere to pay tribute to the 32 million-plus lives lost to AIDS-related illnesses worldwide.
UNC CFAR will be holding their annual World AIDS Day Symposium on December 1st, 2023, in the Bioinformatics Auditorium. Breakfast and Refreshments will be served.
