HIV :: Make every day World AIDS Day

Today, on World AIDS Day, the global community once again takes stock of the progress made and the considerable challenges ahead in the global fight against AIDS. As I have seen during my recent travels to Africa, many lifesaving efforts, undertaken by courageous champions, are serving increasing numbers of individuals and families in communities both large and small. But more, so much more, needs to be done.

Let us pledge to make every day World AIDS Day and to join forces, to each do our part, to ?keep the promise? to those all around the world who need our help. The hopes, aspirations and lives of millions people living with and affected by HIV worldwide demand nothing less.

— Naomi Watts, UNAIDS Special Representative on World AIDS Day, 1 December 2006
