World AIDS Day 2021

Today is World AIDS Day. Take a moment to remember those in our community and across the world that we have lost to the epidemic.

World AIDS Day was first observed in 1988. Each year on December 1st, organizations and individuals across the world bring attention to the HIV epidemic, endeavor to increase HIV awareness and knowledge, speak out against HIV stigma, call for an increased response to move toward ending the HIV epidemic, and remember those who we have lost to the epidemic.

This year, the Pitt Men’s Study commemorative service is being presented virtually in the video below. 

Central Outreach Wellness Center on the North Shore, in partnership with radio station WAMO, is hosting free walk-in HIV testing today along with food and giveaways from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can also enjoy a live radio broadcast of WAMO from the COWC North Shore clinic.
