About World AIDS Day 2013

World AIDS Day began globally on December 1, 1988, as a means to raise funds, increase awareness, fight prejudice, and promote education related to HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. Since then the event has grown and is honored by governments, schools, businesses, and individuals around the world.

At UC San Diego, the goal of World AIDS Day programming is to provide a forum for reflection, education, and action. We hope to engage our community in an ongoing dialogue that encourages each individual to be educated and take action to stop AIDS. More information is available here.

We are pleased this year to have a wide variety of events planned for December 2, 2013. The full listing can be found on the Events page.
