TheYBF.com celebrates WORLD AIDS DAY, which is held every year to address the worldwide AIDS epidemic.  The theme of this year's World AIDS Day is  “Getting to Zero” by 2015. The goal is to encourage governments to live up to their financial pledges so there'll will be "Zero AIDS Related Deaths, Zero New Infections and Zero Discrimination."

Great strides have been made in the epidemic with the most recent global AIDS Report showing new treatment measures have averted more than 2.5 million AIDS related deaths since 1995,  but clearly, the war is far from over.  Funding for HIV has already begun to flat line with many governments not coming through on pledges they have made.  

President Obama released a statement earlier this week saying, 

“This Saturday, December 1st, on World AIDS Day, we will come together as a global community to stand with people affected by HIV/AIDS, to remember those we have lost, and to renew our commitment to ending the pandemic once and for all. We have made great strides in combating this disease, and an AIDS-free generation is within sight."

And both Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis argued that implementing Obama’s healthcare act will be key to combating the disease in the US and giving an estimated 30 million people in the U.S. access to better health insurance and doctors.
