December is World HIV/AIDS Awareness Month

In December, we observe World HIV/AIDS Awareness Month. HIV, or the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, is the virus that causes AIDS, the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. December is a time for everyone to unite in the global fight against HIV/AIDS. Across the globe, there are an estimated 38 million people with HIV. HIV is transmitted through close personal contact of bodily fluids. Early detection and treatment will help someone have the greatest opportunity of living a full and normal life. To be tested, contact your primary care physician or your local health department.
