WORLDS AIDS DAY
Thursday, December 1, 2016
Isaiah House has been a partner in the fight against HIV/AIDS infection for over two decades and we are still doing our part to bring awareness to this epidemic. Currently, there is an estimated 34 million people who have the virus and since 1984 more than 35 million people have died from either HIV or AIDS. This makes it one of the most destructive epidemics in history.
Isaiah House challenges you to take a stand in your daily life against the HIV/AIDS. Wear a red ribbon on December 1st 2016 to show your support and solidarity for the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS. Take a moment and learn one new fact about the virus and spread the word among your friends and family members. #takeastand #helpstopthevirus
