Photos From Around The Globe: Here's How World AIDS Day Was Celebrated

The first of December has been commemorated as a day of raising awareness about AIDS and HIV since 1988, augmenting efforts to address the disease after the virus was identified in 1984.

Advances have been made to control the disease. However the expensive cocktail of drugs needed is mostly only available for the wealthy, and to date, over 34 million people all over the world have died from pandemic. World AIDS Day serves as a reminder each year that AIDS is still very much a problem, and a cure or vaccine has yet to be developed. Many took to social media to show their support with red ribbons, red filters, volunteering at AIDS and HIV awareness events, and so much more on Dec. 1.

Here is a virtual tour of how thousands stood up around the world to help paint the world red for World AIDS Day.
