World AIDS Day takes place every year on 1 December. It reminds the public and government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education. In the UK, there are around 105,000 HIV-positive individuals. An estimated 38 million people worldwide carry the virus. One of the most destructive pandemics in history, despite the virus only being discovered in 1984, has claimed the lives of almost 35 million people.
