World AIDS Day -- 1991

The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated "Sharing the Challenge" as the theme of the fourth annual World AIDS Day, December 1, 1991, to emphasize the importance of a partnership approach to control the epidemic of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). On December 1, WHO, governments, and nongovernmental and community organizations throughout the world will hold special events designed to increase knowledge and understanding about AIDS and to encourage compassion for persons infected with HIV.

In conjunction with this event, the Public Health Service has designated December 1 as National AIDS Awareness Day. Information about HIV infection and AIDS and World AIDS Day is available from CDC's National AIDS Hotline (NAH) and CDC's National AIDS Clearinghouse (NAC). NAH refers callers to services in their community; NAC distributes materials and maintains databases on AIDS service organizations, educational materials, funding sources, and drug trials. The telephone numbers are: NAH, (800) 342-2437 ((800) 342-AIDS; Spanish: (800) 344-7432; or TTY/TDD: (800) 243-7889) and NAC, (800) 458-5231.
