World Aids Day

Celebrate World AIDS Day and Learn about the Work Rutgers Is Doing on the Front Lines of the HIV Epidemic 

Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and University Hospital have been on the front lines in the fight against the HIV epidemic.  

In connection with World AIDS Day <link:> we are inviting students, faculty and the general public to two events with in-person and online options.  

Both events reflect the World AIDS Day 2021 theme: "Ending the HIV Epidemic: Equitable Access, Everyone's Voice." Our events highlight our commitment to ending health inequities and ensuring the voices of people with HIV are central in all our work.
