World AIDS Day is an annual drive initiated by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Over the 34 years since AIDS treatment began in Poland, 24,303 people have tested positive for HIV, 3,692 have developed AIDS, and 1,418 have died of the disease, PAP reported.

Currently, 12,252 Poles, including 98 children, living with HIV are enrolled in free antiretroviral therapy (ART) in the country.

WHO and National AIDS Centre encourage prevention and testing for the virus, which is mainly transmitted sexually and through contaminated needles.

According to WHO estimates, there were approximately 37.9 million people living with HIV worldwide at the end of 2018. In June 2019, 24.5 million people were accessing antiretroviral therapy globally.
