Getting to zero, 1 December 2011 - World AIDS Day

Last year theme for the World Aids Day dealt with "Universal Universal Access and Human Rights":
Understanding HIV and AIDS from a human rights perspective can be difficult. Human rights are often misunderstood - and can sometimes be seen as abstract ideals - with not much practical relevance for real people. Therefore, the slogans emphasized the importance to ensure medical treatment and respect and avoidance of any sort of discrimination:

I am accepted.
I am safe.
I am getting treatment.
I am well.
I am living my rights.
Everyone deserves to live their rights.
Right to Live.
Right to Health.

Access for all to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support is a critical part of human rights. the 2011 theme "Getting to zero" was chosen with the idea to strengthen the results of the last year awareness campaign.
