UTA hosted it’s annual “World Aids Day ” event on Friday, in the Palo Duro Lounge. World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS. To show support for people living with HIV/AIDS, and to commemorate these who have died from it. There is currently no cure for AIDS/ HIV. The only way to stay safe is to be aware of how HIV is transmitted, and how to prevent infection. Since 1981, more than 25 million have died from AIDS. An estimated two million people died in 2008 alone.
