AHF to Mark World AIDS Day in U.S. with Major Cultural Events in NYC, L.A., Miami & Chicago

the largest global AIDS organization, is once again set to hold a
variety of community events and formal observations in many of the 42
countries around the globe that AHF serves in to mark World AIDS Day,
formally observed each year on December 1st.

Under its “Keep the Promise on HIV/AIDS!” banner, AHF will celebrate and
acknowledge progress made in the fight against HIV and AIDS. These AHF
World AIDS Day events also serve as a reminder to world leaders that
with almost one million deaths and nearly two million new infections
occurring last year alone, there is still much work to be done in the
global fight to defeat the epidemic.

In the U.S., AHF events scheduled for World AIDS Day 2018 include
various activities
ranging from free concerts and unifying marches to exciting fashion
shows and empowering advocacy rallies. As always, AHF will be on hand at
many of these events to provide free HIV testing services, distribute
free condoms and hold interactive sessions to raise awareness of
HIV/AIDS and related issues at multiple locations throughout Africa,
Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and the U.S.

AHF’s premier U.S. event, done in partnership with the Debbie Allen
Dance Academy, ‘Keeping
the Promise-1,000,000 Lives in Care-Celebrating Icons of Dance’

takes place Friday, November 30th at the famed Apollo Theater
in NEW YORK. To read the full, separate AHF press release

According to UNAIDS, over 36 million people are living with HIV/AIDS
around the world. Each year nearly 2 million people become infected with
the virus and 1 million die of AIDS-related causes. While millions of
people today are accessing lifesaving antiretroviral therapy, millions
more still desperately need it. The end of the epidemic is only possible
if governments and world leaders Keep the Promise on AIDS.
