World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.
We are already excited for 2012 and have started putting together tools for future physicians across the globe.
AMSA members are working to impact national and international policy related to HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment and to provide AMSA chapters with the tools to engage students in the fight, while teaching the skills of political advocacy. For World AIDS Day 2012, AMSA has prepared a toolkit
, providing information and ideas to raise awareness in medical schools and local communities.
World AIDS Day is an opportunity for you to learn the facts and get involved. Start planning early - December will be here before we know it!
