World AIDS Day

About World AIDS Day

December 1, 2016

Every year since 1988, Action Wellness has proudly recognized World AIDS Day. Today, in observance, Action Wellness is pleased to display the photos and sentiments of staff, community and corporate partners, and friends who took part in our
2016 Action Heroes Wear Red campaign.

World AIDS Day holds special meaning to the Action Wellness family, as it provides an annual opportunity to pay homage to our friends and loved ones tragically lost to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, reach additional vulnerable populations through innovative prevention efforts, and refocus public awareness on the continuing injustices those with HIV disease 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 facts and photos on our Twitter and Instagram pages.

Don’t forget to raise your voice by including the hash tag #ActionHeroesWearRed today in your social media posts, or by simply sharing or re-tweeting 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. See PGN’s listing of World AIDS Day events here.
