World AIDS Day

Red_RibbonZero Discrimination!

December 1st is World AIDS Day. The 2013 theme is Zero Discrimination.

Worldwide, one-third of all new HIV infections outside of sub-Saharan Africa have been attributed to injecting drug use. There are around 3 million people who inject drugs living with HIV/AIDS worldwide, but this number could be as high as 6 million.

One of UNAIDS goals for 2015 is the prevention of all new HIV infections among people who use drugs. Addressing stigma and discrimination is the first step in achieving this goal.
