World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day is December 1. United Methodists are encouraged to observe this event on or near that day. Each year, the General Board of Global Ministries provides resources for this event.
This year's campaign continues the theme of "Leadership," specifically to "Deliver" and "Empower."
As many as 1.8 million people in this sub-Saharan country are living with HIV and AIDS, and two United Methodist ministries have received $20,000 in new grants to help citizens affected by the disease.
