World AIDS Day is commemorated on December 1. People and diverse communities come together to participate in activities and events to appreciate those who have battled with the disease and celebrate progress in response to the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of the HIV infection.
When I fired up my computer at work this morning I was proud to see at the top of our FedEx intranet home page a post about World AIDS Day and FedEx support for the Healthy Women Healthy Economies (HWHE) initiative. FedEx is a member of the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In 2004 we received an e-newsletter from them about HWHE and its success in east Africa. We immediately reached out to the GBC and offered additional support to them to help with this initiative.
