To mark the pivotal impact communities have had in shaping the HIV response, as well as global health at large, the theme of World AIDS Day 2023 is ‘Let communities lead’.
World AIDS Day is an opportunity to reflect on the progress made to date, raise awareness about the challenges that remain to achieve the goals of ending AIDS by 2030 and mobilize all stakeholders to jointly redouble efforts to ensure the success of the HIV response.
The government prepares to unveil Ireland’s first ever HIV/AIDS Monument this coming World AIDS Day, December 1, 2023 in Phoenix Park.
