AIDS awareness. Artwork of a red ribbon symbolising AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) awareness. The ribbon can be worn to remember those who suffer from or have died of AIDS. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) causes AIDS by attacking the patient's immune system, causing secondary opportunistic infections which are fatal. Patients with AIDS face the pressures of having both an incurable disease and often rejection from family, friends and society. December 1st is International AIDS Awareness Day.
