World AIDS Day

Special article collection to raise awareness for World AIDS Day 2020


“38 million people in the world were living with HIV at the end of 2019” — World Health Organization
“Every year, on 1 December, the world commemorates World AIDS Day. In 2020, the world’s attention has been focused by the COVID-19 pandemic on health and how pandemics affect lives and livelihoods. COVID-19 is showing once again how health is interlinked with other critical issues, such as reducing inequality, human rights, gender equality, social protection and economic growth. With this in mind, this year the theme of World AIDS Day is ‘Global solidarity, shared responsibility’.” — UNAIDS

To mark World AIDS Day 2020, which every year is commemorated on 1 December, we are sharing a special collection of articles published in Elsevier journals on different aspects of HIV. The collection is free to access until 1 January 2021.
