The World Health Organization established World AIDS Day in 1988. Held on December 1 each year, it is an opportunity for people to unite in the fight against HIV/AIDS, show their support for people living with the disease and to commemorate people who have died. Out of the estimated 37 million people living with HIV/AIDS, 19 million do not know their status.
HIVdent is a not-for-profit coalition of
concerned health care professionals
committed to assuring access to high quality
oral health care services for adults,
adolescents, and children living with HIV
disease. HIVdent disseminates
state-of-the-art treatment information and
shares expertise in advocacy, development,

only will you find several sections on the oral
manifestations of HIV disease and a large picture
