World AIDS Day

Annually, December 1st is recognized as World AIDS Day. It is a day to globally unite against the fight of HIV/AIDS, show support for those living with it, and celebrate those who lost their lives to it. Through the years, researchers and medical professionals have made scientific advances in the treatment of HIV, laws have been implemented to eliminate professional discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS, and increased knowledge of the disease and its implications have been made. Philadelphia FIGHT is committed to providing the best HIV primary care to low income members of the community through various services.
