Today is World AIDS Day. HIV/AIDS is the greatest pandemic of recent
times, with over 33 million people around the world living with
HIV/AIDS, and the number is increasing every year. Half the number of
people living with HIV/AIDS are women and girls.

According to United Nations Population Fund World AIDS clock
[http://www.unfpa.org/aids_clock/], another person contracts HIV in
every 12 seconds, and in every 16 seconds, one more person dies from
AIDS. This means that by the time you read this paragraph, someone is
living with, and dying from this disease.

Make a stand & take part in a text mob against HIV/AIDS related stigma!

* At 12.00 noon [Dec. 1ar], wherever you are, send a message to 10 people about
