World AIDS Day - Related Health Library Resources

December 1st is World AIDS Day, an international campaign aimed at raising awareness of HIV. Between 1981 and 2007 more than 25 million people have died from the virus worldwide and currently more than 90,000 people live with HIV in the UK. The day offers an opportunity to learn more about the facts, the methods of prevention, as well as helping remove the stigma and discrimination associated with HIV.

Here at the Health Library we have numerous resources related to the subject.
