In its meeting held Monday, November 26, 2018, the Commission approved the proposed proclamation and proclaimed Dec. 1 as World Aids Day. The official signing was held Friday, November 30, 2018. World Aids Day began 30 years ago on December 1, 1988, when the world health ministers called for a spirit of social tolerance and greater awareness of HIV Internationally. World Aids Day continues to be an important way to celebrate the extraordinary advances we have made in the battle against HIV and to remind Greene County residents and people everywhere that HIV has not gone away. In keeping with the 2018 World Aids Day theme Know Your Status members of the Greene County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. encourage those living with HIV to ensure that they are linked to quality care and prevention services.
