World AIDS Day 2007

World AIDS Day is observed every year on December 1. It was established in 1988 by the World Health Organization (WHO) to raise awareness and focus attention on the global AIDS epidemic. The World AIDS Day theme for 2007 is strong, committed leadership and builds upon the 2006 theme of accountability. The slogan for 2001-2010 is "Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise."

Check out these World Aids Day sites:
Read "Bush Urges Congress to Approve Additional AIDS Funds" from the Washington Post. You might also want to check out the press release from the White House, "President Bush Discusses World AIDS Day."
