The spread of HIV/AIDS has become one of the biggest problems of modern times. The virus launches a direct attack on your immune system and gradually weakens your natural defences against disease and infection.

According to a UNICEF report, the number of people dying from HIV/AIDS has tripled since 2000.

The United Nations has stated that India ranks third in terms of the number of people affected by HIV/AIDS.

The first observance of World AIDS Day was December 1, 1988. As of 2013, HIV/AIDS has killed more than 36 million people worldwide.
