What can we all do to support World AIDS Day 2005?
The fact of the matter is, what we do on World AIDS Day should really be done throughout the year. Actions include:
- Raise HIV/AIDS awareness by wearing a red ribbon. Ask others to do the same.
- Protect yourself and your partner by using condoms each and every time.
- Get tested - know your status and encourage others to do the same.
