World AIDS Day was first observed as a commemorative event on 01 December 1988 when Health Ministers from around the world met under the auspices of the World Health Organization and agreed on the concept of the day as creating an opportunity to pay special attention to as well as show solidarity for the global fight against HIV and AIDS. The global theme for the World AIDS Day Campaign is Getting to Zero”. The theme seeks to encourage individuals and communities to have a non – discriminatory and non – judgemental access to adequate HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.
