A global view of HIV infection –
Estimated adult HIV prevalence for countries in 2007

World AIDS Day originated 20 years ago at the 1988 World Summit of Ministers of Health on Programmes for AIDS Prevention. Since then, every year UN agencies, governments and all sectors of civil society worldwide join together to campaign around specific themes related to AIDS.

My hope is that 20 years from now we will no longer be “celebrating” the day as a call to action to do something but “celebrating” the fact that the scourge is no more, one less health challenge to be inherited by future generations.
