December 1st marks World AIDS Day It is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first-ever global health day. Though December 1st has passed, we want to remember people all year long, not just on one day. UF HealthStreet can help you get tested. Call us (352) 294-4880 or visit https://healthstreet.program.ufl.edu/ for more information.
