World AIDS Day Week - November 27-December 1, 2107 

December 1st marks the global awareness of World AIDS Day. Each year, organizations and communities around the world come together to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS, remember those we have lost, and support those living with the disease. World AIDS Day is an important reminder that the disease is still prevalent in our state and that there is still a need to bring awareness to the cause.The Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund and local HIV/AIDS service providers are collaborating to paint the town RED in support of World AIDS Day and bring much-needed awareness to the cause. In conjunction to painting the town RED, we will host several give-back events leading up to World AIDS Day. A complete list of partners and events is coming soon!
