The theme of this awareness day is “Getting to zero: zero new infections, zero discrimination, zero AIDS-related deaths.” It was also last year’s theme and will remain the theme until 2015. Events to mark the day are taking place nationally and globally before, during and after December 1. About 34 million people around the world are living with HIV.
