On December 1, around the world and throughout the United States, communities will come together to mark the 24th annual World AIDS Day. To commemorate the day and raise awareness throughout Oregon and SW Washington, local and global HIV/AIDS service organizations have collaborated to launch the World AIDS Day Northwest campaign with a message of “Getting to Zero – One Person at a Time”. With 33 million people infected world-wide by HIV and 1.1 million in the U.S., the goal of the campaign is to mobilize schools, faith-based organizations, businesses and community-based organizations to become involved in raising awareness, bolstering HIV prevention efforts and ensuring hope for those already infected.
Local area AIDS organizations have come together to create this website to serve as a hub of information for World AIDS Day in Oregon and SW Washington. You can view the events calendar, sign up to publicize their event, download a toolkit to help with event planning and even read and share personal stories.
Nearly everyone in the United States is touched by HIV/AIDS. On December 1, 2012 each of us can do our part in “Getting to Zero”.
One person can make the difference in getting to zero. Learn what you can do.
