World AIDS Day

December 1 - it's World AIDS Day and this year it's been 30 years...30 years of fear, death, and a struggle to fight against a virus that uses our own bodies against us.

Looking for information on HIV/AIDS?

Want to read the latest UNAIDS report on the status of the epidemic (released November 2011)




Or maybe you just want to talk to someone...here are some Twitter accounts to follow:

@CDC_HIVAIDS - by the CDC
