World AIDS Day – Working with Communities to End HIV/AIDS

OECS Media Release

This year marks 42 years since the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) documented the first cases of AIDS.  Since the beginning of the epidemic, communities have played and continue to play,  a vital role in advocating for the care, support and treatment of persons infected and affected by HIV.  It is, therefore, no surprise that on the 35th anniversary of World AIDS Day, The World Health Organization (WHO) has chosen to mark the occasion under the theme of “Let Communities Lead” .  The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Commission salutes and celebrates all persons engaged in the fight against HIV/AIDS and reaffirms its commitment to support this worthy cause.
