World AIDS Day is the date recognized globally every year on December 1 to call attention to the effort to eliminate HIV and AIDS. World AIDS Day is about reminding us all that HIV is an issue for everyone. Hundreds of thousands of new cases of HIV are being diagnosed around the world and the only way we can stop it spreading is by creating a more AIDS Aware society in which everyone takes action. Global Ministries is committed to HIV/AIDS education around the world. This website has been created with several resources that will empower your congregation to take part in the education of HIV/AIDS around the world.

Update on the Global HIV/AIDS Epidemic

     "We pray for your church. Be with us and guide us as we respond to the needs of persons living with or affected by HIV. We pray especially for our pastors and lay leaders as they provide pastoral services. Inspire and empower them to provide the leadership our faith community needs to respond effectively."
     Adapted from A Litany for World AIDS Day 2007 by Rev. Lori Tisher, then UCC Health and Wholeness Advocacy intern
