Started on 1st December 1988, World AIDS Day is about raising money, increasing awareness, fighting prejudice and improving education. The World AIDS Day theme for 2010 is 'Universal Access and Human Rights'. World AIDS Day is important for reminding people that HIV has not gone away, and that there are many things still to be done.

According to UNAIDS estimates, there are now 33.3 million people living with HIV, including 2.5 million children. During 2009 some 2.6 million people became newly infected with the virus and an estimated 1.8 million people died from AIDS.1

The vast majority of people with HIV and AIDS live in lower- and middle-income countries. But HIV today is a threat to men, women and children on all continents around the world.

Nov 30th US Protests: "China, Pay Your Fair Share on Global AIDS!"

 

While China has contributed a mere $16 million to the Global Fund yet received $940 million, the United States, by contrast, has contributed $5.1 billion while has given Japan $1.3 billion and France $2.2 billion.

"The Chinese government should be showing more leadership on HIV/AIDS than it has over the past decade and it should be shouldering far greater financial responsibility in helping to combat the global AIDS epidemic," said Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS Healthcare Foundation. "As one of the largest recipients of Global Fund money, China—second only to the US as the largest economy in the world—is taking desperately-needed resources away from countries with far greater need. Through these protests in Washington and Los Angeles and as World AIDS Day approaches, we are urging the Chinese Government to 'give more and take less' from the Global Fund."
