World Aids Day History
The World AIDS Day was primary conceived in August 1987 by Thomas Netter and James W. Bunn, both are information officers for GlobalProgram on AIDS at World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. Netter and Bunn took their scheme to Dr. Jonathan Mann, Director of Global Program onAIDS (known as UNAIDS). Dr. Mann liked the idea, permitted it, and consent withthe proposal that the initial ceremony of the World AIDS Day ought to be 1st December, 1988.
Bunn recommended the date of 1st December to make sure reporting through western news media. He felt that since 1988 was a voting year in U.S. media passage would be tired of their post-election reporting and excited to get fresh news to cover. Netter and Bunn felt that 1st December was adequate after voting and early enough prior to Christmas holidays, in fact, it was a dead spot in news calendar and consequently perfect timing for the World AIDS Day.

James W. Bunn along with creator Nancy Saslow initiated and conceived “AIDS Lifeline” – a health educationcampaign and public awareness that was organized to television stations in U.S. "AIDS Lifeline" was privileged with a Peabody Award, a local Emmy, and the foremost National Emmy honored to local station in U.S.
 On 18th June, 1986 the “AIDS Lifeline” plan was awarded with Presidential reference for the Private Sector Initiatives, which is presented via President Ronald Reagan. Then Bunn was asked through Dr. Mann,for U.S. Govt, to take two-year leave-of-absence from his coverage duties to link Dr. Mann (an epidemiologist for the Centers for Disease Control) and support in the formation of Global Program on AIDS. Bunn accepted it and was also named the primary PublicInformation Officer for Global Program on AIDS. With Netter he implemented, created and designed the opening World AIDS Day ceremony – currently the longest-runningdisease prevention and awareness program of its type in the account of public health)
The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) became equipped in 1996, it captured the preparation and endorsementof the World AIDS Day. Beforefocus on single day UNAIDS made World AIDS crusade in 1997 to focus on constant communications education andprevention.
In its initial two years, the idea of the World AIDS Day focused on young people andchildren. These ideas were strongly condemned at the time for disregarded the fact that natives of all ages mightbecome infected with HIV diseases and endure from AIDS. However the thoughts drew concentration to HIV/AIDS endemic helped the persons those who were suffered from HIV/AIDS.

Picking the World Aids Day Theme
In the year of 2004, World AIDS crusade became a sovereign organization. Fromits beginning until 2004, UNAIDS organized the World AIDS Day operation, selecting annual topics in discussion with other worldwide health associations.
As of 2008, every year’s World AIDS Day idea is chosen through the World AIDS Campaign's universal Steering Committee following extensive discussion with organizations, people, and Govt agencies occupied in thetreatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS.
For all World AIDS Day from 2005 through 2010, the subject will be "Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise” with an annual sub-theme. This overarching topic is intendedto persuade supporting leaders to keep their pledge to achieve worldwide access to HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, support and careby the year 2010.
And this topic is not precise to the World AIDS Day, but it is used year-round in WAC's attempts to show up HIV/AIDSalertness within the background of other main global events comprising the G8 Summit. The world AIDS Campaign conducts"in-country" campaigns all through the world, like Student Stop AIDS Campaign , an infection-alertness operation targetingyouth people throughout UK.
