World AIDS Day -- December 1, 1992

"AIDS: A Community Commitment" is the theme selected by the World Health Organization (WHO) for the fifth annual World AIDS Day, December 1, 1992. This year's theme focuses attention on the men, women, and children throughout the world who are infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the cause of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Activities will highlight the role communities play in controlling the epidemic of HIV infection and 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, AIDS, and World AIDS Day is available from the CDC National AIDS Hotline (CDC NAH) and the CDC National AIDS Clearinghouse (CDC NAC). The CDC NAH provides callers with information about HIV/AIDS, refers callers to services in their community, and places orders for HIV/AIDS publications; the CDC NAC distributes materials and maintains data bases on AIDS service organizations, educational materials, funding sources, and drug trials. The telephone numbers for CDC NAH are (800) 342-2437 ([800] 342-AIDS); Spanish, (800) 344-7432 ([800] 344-SIDA); or deaf service, (800) 243-7889 ([800] AIDS-TTY).
