Join the National AIDS Memorial and their partners on World AIDS Day with powerful voices for a series of inspiring and insightful conversations. 2021 marks 40 years since the first cases of AIDS were reported in the United States, a pandemic that has led to more than 700,000 lives lost and still no cure four decades later. This year, as our nation continues to struggle through another pandemic, the National AIDS Memorial will deliver its annual World AIDS Day National Observance to the nation through this virtual forum with timely and powerful discussions focused on health and social justice, particularly among communities of color.
