Today marks the 23rd anniversary of World AIDS Day. Despite all of the advances in treating AIDS and preventing HIV, there’s still much work to be done. According a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control, 20% of HIV+ persons don’t know they have the virus. Of those that are aware, only 1 in 4 have their condition under control with medication.
I remember seeing a traveling exhibit of the AIDS quilt when I was in college. Now, on this 30th anniversary of the first diagnosis, you can contribute to a digital AIDS quilt. Go to http://www.2015quilt.com/ to make your square.
