World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day – December 1, 2019

Since 1988, Action Wellness has proudly recognized World AIDS Day annually. Today, in observance, We are pleased to display the pictures and sentiments of staff, volunteers, community and corporate partners, and friends who took part in our fourth annual Action Heroes Wear Red campaign. 

World AIDS Day holds special meaning to Action Wellness, as it provides an annual opportunity to remember our friends and loved ones lost to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, continue to reach out to people at risk for HIV through innovative prevention efforts, and refocus public awareness on the continuing challenges those living with HIV face within our society.  

We invite you to visit our Facebook page throughout the day, to view Action Hero photos, informative videos from our Executive Director Kevin Burns and other Action Wellness staff, as well as receive important information about how you can access free HIV testing and other valuable health services. You can also view HIV facts and other news on our Twitter and Instagram pages. 

Don’t forget to elevate your voice by including the hashtag #ActionHeroesWearRed today in your social media posts, or by simply sharing or retweeting our posts to friends, family, and colleagues.  Your support will help to shine a much needed spotlight on a myriad of important issues faced by those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS throughout Greater Philadelphia, and beyond. 

As in previous years, Action Wellness was privileged to continue its longstanding partnership with Philadelphia Gay News to produce a special World AIDS Day news supplement. You can read the 2019 issue HERE.
