This year the Michigan Department of Community Health is using the week around this day to spread awareness about issues surrounding HIV and AIDS.

The theme for this year’s World AIDS Day is ‘getting to zero’.

The goals of; zero new infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS related deaths have not been met, however Angela Minicuci with the MDCH says we have come a long way since the first World AIDS Day in 1988.

“It’s something that has changed a lot in our community across the state of Michigan as well as nationally” Minicuci said, “we’ve gotten a much better understanding of the disease as a whole and what we can do to improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS.”

The MDHC is hosting many events this week, a full list can be found on their site.
