2016 World AIDS Day Photo Booth
World AIDS Day is a day of solidarity to “get to zero.”
The University of California San Diego recognized World AIDS Day on Friday, Dec. 1, 2016, to draw attention to the impact of HIV/AIDS on the San Diego community, the nation and the globe. In honor of the international event, which was established in 1988, the campus sponsored a number of free activities open to the public including a display of three sections of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, the largest ongoing arts project in the world.
The UCSD Students for Global Health took part in the World AID’s Day events at UC San Diego. The day started with events like the photo booth on library walk and ended with GBM #3, where members heard firsthand stories from a panel of young adults who are living with HIV.
“World AIDS Day is an opportunity for the UC San Diego community to join people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS,” said Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla. “At UC San Diego, we are dedicated to conducting innovative research and providing advanced care to treat patients and prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.”
