World AIDS Day

Today, December 1, is the annual observance of World AIDS Day.

A Concord Pastor has two posts to mark the day.

And, some numbers from Catholic Relief Services:

UNAIDS estimates that 33.2 million people globally are living with HIV. This number includes an estimated 2.5 million children under the age of 15 years.

The number of people receiving antiretroviral therapy in low- and middle-income countries has increased tenfold since the end of 2001, almost to 3 million. However, only 31 percent of people in need of treatment are currently receiving it.
