World AIDS Day: Home

World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day began in 1988 to recognize the devastation AIDS was causing and help unite people living with HIV, those mourning loved ones lost to AIDS-related illnesses, and broader society to help end the stigma and isolation that prevents prevention, testing, and treatment to eradicate HIV-AIDS. World AIDS Day is a call to action to address the inequalities that perpetuate HIV-AIDS and address our misconceptions to protect those most at risk of infection and care for those living with HIV.




This LibGuide was co-created by Amy Harth, PhD, Assistant National Dean of Accreditation and Academic Quality, and by Joe Louderback, MLS, Reference and Instruction Librarian, as part of an ongoing series to reflect DeVry University’s commitment to, and celebration of, diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.
