World AIDS Day at NYU

Every December 1 since 1988, World AIDS Day -the first ever global health day-has been an occasion to mourn the more than 35 million people who have been lost to the disease since it was first identified, support those living with it now, and unite in the cause of improving prevention, treatment, awareness, and research efforts happening across the globe.

At NYU, we show our support and mark the occasion by taking stock of the events, research, and resources that our community contributes to the cause every day throughout the year. The Student Health Center offers a comprehensive look at World AIDS Day 2019, including an overview of the preventative medicine known as PrEP. Below are a variety of other updates on some of the university's ongoing work on this disease.
