December 1st is World AIDS Day, a day for celebration here at ROWAN. It is a day to raise awareness about this affliction, show support for those who suffer from it & fondly remember the people we have lost to it.
The globe observes world AIDS day to keep the AIDS/ HIV in the public mind & show those who live with it every day that they are not alone. This day is also to remind governments of the world that this epidemic is not a silent one & the people who carry it should have a chance to live a good life.
