Ways to Commemorate World AIDS Day 35 with HIV.gov
Here are two resources for World AIDS Day.
1. Watch – FYI Video with Harold Phillips
WatchExit Disclaimer our FYI video with Harold J. Phillips, MRP, Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, as he shares why we should pause and reflect on the importance of World AIDS Day. He also discusses a pivotal moment in our HIV response, stigma, the U.S. Government’s efforts to end the HIV epidemic, and creating awareness regarding HIV criminalization.
2. Tune In – HIV.gov’s Livestream
On Monday, December 4 at 1:30pm ET, watch a livestreamed conversation hosted by HIV.gov. Harold Phillips will be joined by Caroline Talev, Senior Management Analyst in the HHS Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy and Alternate Designated Officer, Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS. You may watch the conversation on HIV.gov’s FacebookExit Disclaimer and YouTube pages, as well as on OIDP’s LinkedInExit Disclaimer page. The discussion will highlight federal World AIDS Day activities and emphasize the importance of reflecting upon those we’ve lost throughout the HIV epidemic.
HIV.gov also encourages our readers to stay up to date on activities, events, and other ways to recognize and participate in the global commemoration of World AIDS Day on December 1. This year’s federal theme, “World AIDS Day 35: Remember and Commit” urges us all to reflect upon those we’ve lost and celebrate the progress made in working toward ending the HIV epidemic.
World AIDS Day is truly a time when we come together and reflect upon not only those we’ve lost, but those living with HIV, and also our progress in HIV care, treatment, and prevention, and research.
