World AIDS Day has been observed on December 1st each year since 1988. Special community messages and events are hosted to show the world that as a people we are united in the fight against HIV; to demonstrate our support for people living with HIV; and to commemorate those who have died from AIDS-related illnesses. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.
Support MAO's efforts to remove the stigma of HIV and AIDS, honor those lost, celebrate the lives of those living with HIV, and educate South Alabama communities about HIV. Add you support and challenge others. Create your challenge page and share with friends, neighbors, colleagues, and others on social media. Add your own donation to your challenge page. World AIDS Day Challenge donations off-set the costs of community education and outreach programs associated with HIV, STIs and rural health concerns in South Alabama. At this time of year, you are supporting the continuation of critical prevention education programs in the hard hit communities as we enter a new year.
