World AIDS day is observed every year on 1st December worldwide to raise awareness to fight HIV & AIDS.
This day reminds all of us to work together to create an environment where every person gets good quality health care, medicines and treatment with respect and dignity, without any kind of discrimination. Each of us needs to educate others to prevent the spread of HIV.
The theme of this year’s campaign is “My Health, My Right: Increasing impact through Transparency, Accountability and Partnerships”, which focuses on the right to health while also assuring, adequate sanitation and housing, healthy working conditions, a clean environment and access to justice.
On this day, I call upon all stakeholders to come forward and join hands with Andaman and Nicobar AIDS Control Society and work together for this noble cause.
Together we can fight HIV/AIDS.
