Welcome to SAfAIDS

2016 has fast come and gone! We are now in December, the last month of 2016. As in past years, the 1st of December is a day when the whole world commemorates World AIDS Day. SAfAIDS joins the rest of the world today in standing together and walking the Ending AIDS by 2030 journey with zest. This is the day that we need to raise awareness about HIV and demonstrate our commitment and solidarity to all efforts being done in the global HIV response.
