Jeffco Public Health is raising awareness about World AIDA Day on Monday, Dec. 1. On this day, people worldwide unite to fight against HIV and to show support for the people living with HIV and to commemorate those that have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than half a million people have died of AIDS in the U.S. since the beginning of the HIV and AIDS epidemic- that is equivalent to the entire population of Jefferson County.
