Today, December 1, is World AIDS Day-- a day to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the first published reports of what would come to be known as HIV/AIDS.  This disease has caused more than 35 million deaths around the world.

In the United States, 675,000 people have died of AIDS-related illnesses. Today, infection is on the decline, but more than 1.2 million people still live with HIV. Roughly 1 in 8 people are not aware they carry the virus.
