On 1 December 1988 the first World AIDS Day was recognised, and this now take place on 1 December each year. The day commemorates those who have sadly died from an AIDS-related illness, and provides an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV and to show their support for people living with HIV.
Human Rights Day is celebrated annually across the world on 10 December every year. The date was chosen to honour the United Nations General Assembly's adoption and proclamation, on 10 December 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Today it is more important than ever to recall that human rights are universal and indivisible, and that our efforts to defend them can never stop!
