Every year 1 of December brings together people from around the world to raise awareness of the AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome).
AIDS is caused by Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). HIV can be transmitted through unprotected sexual intercourse, transfusion of contaminated blood, sharing contaminated needles or other sharp instruments, and from mother to children during pregnancy, child-birth and/or breast-feeding.
The international symbol of AIDS awareness is a red ribbon, created by the New York-based Visual AIDS artists in 1991.
Enough to use some ordinary red ribbon and a safe spin to have an international symbol of this day (besides that the red ribbon is a symbol for the fight against AIDS it turnes out to be also a symbol for drunk driving prevention and drug prevention).
