Since 1998, World AIDS Day has been recognized on December 1st. The mission of World AIDS Day has been to raise awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of the HIV infection. According to WorldAIDSDay.org, “[a]round 100,000 are currently living with HIV in the UK and globally an estimated 34 million people have HIV. More than 25 million people between 1981 and 2007 have died from the virus, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.”

This year, many people, including celebrities, raised awareness on social media.
