World Aids Day - 1 December

World AIDS Day events are happening all around Australia in the lead up to World AIDS Day on the 1st of December.  2011 marks the 30th anniversary of the first confirmed case of HIV/AIDS.

The theme for World AIDS Day 2011 is that HIV is still here. The aim is to make all Australians aware of the prevalence of HIV/AIDS to take action to reduce the transmission of HIV by engaging in safer sex practices and to accept individuals living with or affect by HIV/AIDS.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus is transmissible through bodily fluids such as blood.

For more info about the events happening in each state go to the World AIDS Day Australia website.

Or visit the AIDS council in your state:  ACT  |  NSW  |  NT  | QLD  | SA  |  TAS  |  VIC  |  WA
