World AIDS Day 2022

World AIDS Day 2022

This year on World AIDS Day, San Francisco AIDS Foundation remembers our history as we look to the future of HIV.

We honor the many leaders, activists, survivors, volunteers, and educators who took bold steps to confront an epidemic growing in our community. We mourn the loss of so many of our lovers, friends, and family members, and we celebrate the many survivors who have paved the way and defined what it means to live well with HIV. On this day, we hold the difficult memories from 40 years of HIV and AIDS, and at the same time look forward to a future of health justice for all.

World AIDS Day is a day to heal our grief

By Paul A. Aguilar

Each World AIDS Day, when I am able to join with my community and others and can take a break, acknowledge my loss, memorialize those losses and take action by marching or by dancing, I am healed a little bit more.
