World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.
HIV Testing with our mobile testing unit will take place at Public Square on Monday, Dec. 1st from 12pm-6pm. Join Radio One, AIDS Funding Collaborative and the staff of the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland, an affiliate of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, for this event aimed having everyone know their HIV status. About one in four people with HIV don’t know that they are infected. HIV is often asymptomatic for years, so the only way to know your status is to get tested. The earlier HIV is discovered, the better it can be treated. Our goal? 20 million people in care by 2020.
Join us at the AIDS Taskforce office (2829 Euclid Avenue) from 6-8pm on Monday, December 1st for a candlelight vigil to raise awareness, support those living with the virus, & remember those who have passed on.
A drag/fashion show will immediately follow the candlelight vigil at 4700 Prospect Avenue from 8-11pm.
Please call 216-621-0766 for more details.
