World Aids Awareness Day

People from all over the world are recognizing today as World Aids Awareness Day. But don't think the problem is just in Africa. People from all over the world are astonished at the rise in cases of Aids within the past Ten years.

There are approximately 5.1 million people who are infected in India. China is putting forth a campaign where estimates in that country could be as high as 10 million by 2010. Sadly only 15% of people in Africa are able to get the needed medicine to fight the disease. Switzerland is in the fight too, but the messages aren't working so well anymore.

I think the World Aids Day Organization has done a great job with their new poster as seen above. They have a few compelling stories on the site as well.
