Abstract

"In 1988, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared 1 December as World AIDS Day. The day is now one of the most popular commemorative days, with people across the world raising awareness about a preventable disease that has struck over 50 million people. The year-long theme for 2004 is Women, Girls, HIV and AIDS. The World AIDS campaign aims to highlight critical gender issues, including the urgent need for effective prevention options for women and the burden borne by women from AIDS."
