World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day is commemorated each year on the 1st of December and is an opportunity for every community to unite in the fight against HIV, show support for people living with HIV and remember those who have died.
 
The UNAIDS World AIDS Day theme for 2011 to 2015 is: “Getting to Zero”. This year, South Africa will focus on 'Zero Discrimination', without losing sight of the other ‘zeroes’; zero new HIV infections and zero AIDS related deaths. We call on all South Africans to join our Zero Stigma, Zero Discrimination campaign for World AIDS Day 2016.
 

Less than Half of Infected People Know their Status

The South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) say that although 65 percent of South Africans reportedly have been tested for HIV at least once, annual testing figures are much lower.

While less than a third of South Africa’s 35 million sexually active people get tested for HIV annually, according to health department figures, SANAC says that the country has among the ‘highest population-level HIV testing in the world’.

The Antidote for AIDS Is Hope

A recent LoveLife radio campaign speculates that the root cause of the South African AIDS epidemic is not ignorance, cultural practice or lack of education. Rather, it is a lack of hope and income earning opportunity among those most at risk, namely school leavers and the youth that continues to fuel the spread of this insidious disease.
