World AIDS Day 2014 celebrates its 26th year on Monday as more people across the globe show their support to those individuals living with the said virus.
Millions of people have already died and are still infected with the disease in the past 30 years. Many infected patients are still striving for their life as the virus slowly affects their normal body functioning while many scientists are still trying to discover and create a drug that will hopefully destroy the virus that is terrorizing many people who belong in the sexually active age group. Infected patients come from almost all types of society while most diseased children have contracted it from their mothers carrying the virus.
As the society continues to advance and remains embattled with the said disease, the World AIDS Day 2014 with a theme of “Focus, Partner, Achieve: An AIDS-free Generation” still promotes awareness about the said autoimmune disease that has killed almost 35 million people.
This year’s celebration does not just actually focus on raising awareness, but it is also a way of attracting sponsors who could greatly help with the activities being campaigned for to stop the spread of the virus as 34 million people are estimated to be infected.
Before the 26th year Commemoration of the World AIDS Day 2014, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has already encouraged more people to invest to help with the treatment of infected people especially with the sick children. Recent reports regarding the number of cases of the disease also claims that there has been a significant drop in the infected population.
While many parts of the globe celebrates this 2014 event to attract more investors or sponsors who could potentially help the expenses needed for finding cure of the disease, some World AIDS Day advocates focus more on the prevention and treatment.
