World AIDS Day

red riboonAbout World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day is held on December 1 each year across the world.

World AIDS Day (WAD) aims to raise awareness of HIV and the issues related to the virus including the need to reduce the stigma and discrimination faced by people living with the virus.

The red ribbon is an international symbol of HIV awareness. The red ribbon is worn by people all year round to demonstrate support for people living with or affected by HIV and to commemorate the lives lost to this virus.


WAD 2016 will be celebrated with a free community BBQ on December 1 in Hindmarsh Square at 11am. For more information click here.

Relationships Australia SA offers support services for people and their loved ones living with HIV.
