WORLD AIDS DAY is a day is held on December 1st and it gives an opportunity for people around the world to come together and fight against HIV, as well as show their support for people living with HIV/AIDS. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.


Technology has helped a lot during my reserach of this because it gives you both old and current information about what is happening or what the orgaizations are doing to help. It provides images and links to the organizations being held around the world. I find it pretty cool how people can comment and read your blogs on what you have reserached and hopefully spread the word out. I find it in this generation technology has played a big part of many of the things that spreads around.


Why did you choose this topic?

After reseraching this issuse, I have learned that being cured and having education is not always easy. Many developing countries do not know about HIV/AIDS and therefore there is no cure. Many do not even know they carry it in themselves. I have also learned that HIV/AIDS is something that should be talked about more widely and as well as the resourses that can be accessed. I believe HIV/AIDS is a big issue that needs attention because with the people who have education can educate others who do not have a clue what HIV/AIDS are. It can be an on going message that will slowly make a difference and provide cure for those who are infected.


What do you feel compelled to say about the issue?

After researching this issue I have learned a couple things as well as questions that I have not found the answer too. It surprises me how many people are uneducated about HIV/AIDS and how little recourses there is in developing countries. Although there is many organizations involving HIV/AIDS there is still very little information being sent in developing countries. A question I had throughout this topic was why is Africa the most populated people who have HIV/AIDS than any other developing country? I have asked this question myself and I belive that the reason why Africa has so many people suffering from HIV/AIDS is because of the lack of education, the unsanitay water, and the disesases and other infections being spreaded around.  


HOW can we create a socially just approach?

HIV/AIDS is something we cannot cure, there is no way to solve the problem. The only way we could help and reduce the amount of people getting infected by HIV/AIDS is to educate them and spread the word. Right now there is very little education going around in developing countries and as well as very little vaccine that is being provided. There is already many organizations going around to help get the word around but there is still a large group of people who do not have a clue what HIV/AIDS are and how they can be protected.

Players & Stakeholders

The people who are involved in this problem are the individuals who carry HIV or AIDS also the ones that are also affected with this disease and the families. Besides the families that are involved, organizations such as WHO, UNIAIDS and the STEPHEN LEWIS FOUNDATION. There organizations are helpful in many ways. The WHO organization known as WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION provides leadership on global health problems, they also help shape the health research agenda, set norms and standards for the health organizations.
