The AIDS Day was established to raise awareness of the AIDS epidemic caused by HIV infection.

Everyone can protect themselves and their loved ones by passing timely testing and forming a responsible attitude to their own health, passing it to the younger generation. Early detection of HIV infection enables individuals to begin treatment in time and to maintain active and fulfilling lifestyles.
