World AIDS Day is held on December 1 each year. It aims to raise awareness about the issues surrounding HIV and AIDS.
World AIDS Day aims to further educate Australians about HIV. This helps reduce the spreading of HIV by encourage prevention strategies.
We here at Summerdale Medical Centre can support people to access testing, treatment and care, as we know that commencing treatment at the early stages of HIV results in better health outcomes and reduces the likelihood of onward transmission.
Show your support for people living with HIV on World AIDS Day by wearing a red ribbon, the international symbol of HIV awareness and support.
