According to UNAIDS estimates, there were 33 million people living with HIV in 2007, including 2 million children. In 2007 some 2.7 million people became newly infected with the virus and around 2 million people died of AIDS related illnesses.

Most people living with HIV are in developing countries; however HIV affects people in every country and poses a huge global challenge to humanity.

Started on 1st December 1988, World AIDS Day is about increasing awareness, improving education and reducing stigma and discrimination around HIV. World AIDS Day is an important reminder that HIV is still one of the leading caused of death globally and that there are many challenges still to overcome.

The special amateur radio station 4U1AIDS was operated from UNAIDS headquarters in Geneva from 1-7 December 2009.
