It's the first of december today and whilst many will see it as the start of the silly season, it also World Aids Day.
Let's pause and think.......
We lost a lovely friend to HIV many years ago at a ridiculously young age and I still think of him.
World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.
