World AIDS Day will allow us to take a moment and realize all the different advances and progress that has been accomplished when it comes to HIV prevention and awareness. In the past 3 years there has been significant progress made in the field of HIV, but the work really doesn’t stop there.
It is extremely important to keep the issue of AIDS and HIV in the face of the public. For this reason, it will also be extremely important for people to recognize World AIDS Day with the rest of the world by wearing red ribbons for AIDS. This is to show everyone that you also support this very important movement and the issues that surround it.
Although wearing red ribbon pins are extremely important, there are many ways people like you can help to arouse awareness and concern for this devastating infection. Prevention is only as good as the people that help to bring these issues to the forefront.
Many people may get lax simply because they aren’t hearing news about HIV or AIDS on a daily basis, but the fact is – people are continuing to die from HIV infections, and many of the reasons are completely avoidable.
Like any other epidemic that man has ever had to deal with, it all relies on people to come together over one cause. That cause is to help people understand the enormous ramifications this deadly virus will have if gone un-checked.
World AIDS Day comes around each year on December 1st and this year is no different. Although there are many accomplishments that can be celebrated, there are many defeats that need to be remembered.
With continued effort on your part, more and more people will become aware and those new faces will be able to contribute to this life threatening cause. With the help of ‘people’, vaccines will become available just as they had when the measles, smallpox, and polio ravaged humans at will.
People will one day be able to use these important vaccines for protection in the hopes that one day, more advanced vaccines or cures are found. As stated before, this doesn’t happen at the hand of one person, this type of help takes ‘people’ – people like you, your family, and your friends. If you really want to become involved in something extremely special, and something that can really make a difference in your life as well as others, take some time this December 1st and wear red ribbon pins for AIDS, and join with the rest of the world to recognize World AIDS Day.
