Welcome to Our Event

World AIDS Day takes place on December 1 each year. It is a chance for people all over the globe to come together in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living withHIV, and to honor those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.

Each year, the Volusia & Flagler World AIDS Day Planning Committee strives to commemorate the day with special services and events dedicated for this purpose.

While the world navigates the daily challenges of the additional pandemic of COVID-19, we solidified our commitment to our community. We have banned together to face those challenges to bring you this year’s “World AIDS Day … In a Virtual World.”
