Every year on December 1st, World AIDS Day is celebrated

Every year, on December 1st, celebrates World AIDS Day, proclaimed by the World Health Organization in 1988

AIDS - Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome - is the final stage of an infectious disease caused by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This virus affects special blood cells (lymphocytes) that are responsible for protecting the human body against various germs and tumors, and gradually kills these cells. The body's immunity is slowly diminishing for many months and years, and it leads to various diseases, especially infectious ones, affecting the lungs, digestive organs, skin, nervous system and so on.

AIDS was first discovered in the United States in the 1980s. In a few years, the spread of the disease has become a worldwide epidemic. Since then, this disease has come face to face in every corner of the globe. According to the World Health Organization, more than 32 million people have been killed since the start of the worldwide AIDS epidemic.

According to the Ministry of Public Health of Ukraine, since 1987, 341 084 cases of HIV infection have been officially registered in Ukraine, including 114 487 cases of AIDS and 49 751 cases of deaths caused by AIDS. The regions most affected by HIV are the Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk, Mykolaiv, Kyiv and Chernihiv regions, as well as Kyiv.
