World AIDS Day, observed each year on December 1, marks an opportunity for people across the globe to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and commemorate people who have died.

There are lots of ways you can get involved to help bring awareness about HIV—from posting on social media to hosting your own World AIDS Day event. Visit the World AIDS Day page on for resources and more information. Search the POZ Calendar to find events in your area.
