Today is World AIDS Day. It is a time to honor those who have lost their lives to AIDS, communicate our ongoing commitment to assist those who are living with or at risk for HIV, and celebrate the caregivers, families, friends, and communities that support them. #WAD2017 #HOPWA pic.twitter.com/n8EcjMxkNR
