Bloggers Unite for World Aids Day

Today is World Aids Day, when bloggers across the universe unite to spotlight the continuing challenge to educate and test those who have, or may have, AIDS.

Joining with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of HIV/AIDS Policy’s AIDS.gov, bloggers know awareness leads to action. If we can touch even one person and convince them to get tested or help someone learn about AIDS prevention, than we have done a great deed.

According to statistics, nearly half of all AIDS cases in the U.S. involve people 13 to 24 years of age. More than 250,000 others are estimated to be HIV positive and not know it. More than 1 million are estimated to have AIDS.

Worldwide, there are an estimated 33 million people with AIDS. It affects every country, city, and town around the world.

Encourage at risk young people to get tested for the AIDS virus. You may save not only one life, but many lives. AIDS is going largely unchecked in the world today. Education, prevention, and testing are the best options to eradicate AIDS.
