world aids dayIf you are local in New York, you can join Apicha CHC in commemorating and raising awareness for World AIDS Day on December 1. If you live elsewhere, there are plenty of other ways to help and raise awareness and support the cause.

About World AIDS Day Event

Between 800-1,500 people are expected to attend World AIDS Day in NYC this year. Elected officials, government staff, and community members will unite to recognize the importance of AIDS, while media will focus on educating the audience about the End AIDS NY 2020 campaign.

End AIDS in NY by 2020

Several HIV/AIDS and LGBT organizations have formed a coalition dedicated to one single message: Together we can and will end AIDS in New York by 2020. Governor Cuomo announced this commitment, which will consist of various initiatives to continue progress on the goal.

The NYC HIV/AIDS community and New York City government unite on December 1 to end this epidemic. If you are unable to join the event in person, help raise awareness about the day, the cause, and the city's goal through social media and in-person communications.
