Since 1988, December 1 has been marked as World AIDS Day. It’s the key moment in the year to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, and be in solidarity with people living with or affected by HIV across the globe. To celebrate the 2007-2008 World AIDS Day theme of leadership, the World AIDS Campaign calls upon individuals to sign the Stop AIDS Leadership Pledge. Pledges are being collected online, by mail and at events. They’ll also be used to create exhibitions, banners and other highly visible displays at major events in 2008-09.

With a goal of at least 100,000 signatories, these pledges will serve as a persuasive tool for gaining greater political leadership on universal access to AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support. They will also serve as a visual example for key national and international decision-makers to follow.

Use the simple online form to quickly and easily pledge your leadership in helping to stop AIDS.
