The World Health Organization established World AIDS Day in 1988. World AIDS Day provides governments, national AIDS programs, faith organizations, community organizations, and individuals with an opportunity to raise awareness and focus attention on the global AIDS epidemic.
In 2007, the estimated number of persons living with HIV worldwide was 33.2 million and there were 2.7 million people newly infected. Download the 2008 Report on the Global Aids Epidemic to learn more. We hope these resources will assist your efforts to educate, motivate, and mobilize your local community in the fight against HIV/AIDS!
A way you can respond to this epidemic is by purchasing one of the handmade table runners we have available on the ServLife Store. These table runners are made by HIV+ women living in Kenya and by purchasing one of these, you can directly help support these women. These are available at the ServLife Store for $38.
