World AIDS Day is every year on Dec. 1 and this marks the 27th anniversary of the disease which has claimed 25 millions lives worldwide and continues to spread.

The purpose of World AIDS Day is to honor the lives of those who suffered from the disease, and to give support to those who still live with the disease, its also a time to raise awareness and inform others about the virus.

This event is being held in observance of World AIDS Day. We are hosting this event to raise awareness in the community, gain support from the community and help defuse the stigma and discrimination that has been attached to the virus.

We will bring a copy of the map with all the local diagnosed cases of HIV. For testing and ticket purchase info please visit our website at Or call 334-673-0494.
