World AIDS Day

25 years later and the fight continues against AIDS. World AIDS Day, is an event to help increase awareness of the disease.  

"HIV has been around for 25 years. We have kinda accepted it and we need to remind ourselves that this is an epidemic that continues to spread and see what we can do to prevent the spread," says Dr. David Lakey, UT Health Center at Tyler.

Dr. Lakey says with no cure approximately 40,000 people are infected with the disease every year.
