This year’s WAD was celebrated under the Global Theme: End Inequality, End AIDS, End Pademic.
December 1 is celebrated each year as World AIDS Day to help raise awareness (and life-changing funds) to fight HIV.
UNAIDS is highlighting the urgent need to end the inequalities that drive AIDS and other pandemics around the world.
Without bold action against inequalities, the world risks missing the targets to end AIDS by 2030, as well as a prolonged COVID-19 pandemic and a spiralling social and economic crisis.
Forty years since the first AIDS cases were reported, HIV still threatens the world. Today, the world is off track from delivering on the shared commitment to end AIDS by 2030 not because of a lack of knowledge or tools to beat AIDS, but because of structural inequalities that obstruct proven solutions to HIV prevention and treatment (UNAIDS 2021 WAD Statement).
Economic, social, cultural and legal inequalities must be ended as a matter of urgency if we are to end AIDS by 2030 (UNAIDS 2021 WAD Statement).
