World AIDS Day

Today, December 1, 2012, is World AIDS Day. A day set aside to for awareness of preventing new HIV infection and living with HIV/AIDS.

HIV/AIDS first became knows in the early 1980's. It was called a gay cancer because of the number of gay men, mostly in San Francisco, who were dying of a strange and unknown disease.

Since then, we're learned HIV/AIDS is not a gay health issue. It is a HUMAN health issue.

(Red) is an organization which has brought together the power of companies and people to fight AIDS. Their goal is to deliver an AIDS-free generation by 2015.

You can join their fight at: JoinRed.

If you have never been touched by the devastation of AIDS, feel blessed.

If you want to find out what you don't know, you can take this quiz.  If you learn something, share it with others.

You can make a difference in a generation that speaks of AIDS like past generations speak of polio.
