World Aids Day 2008This year marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day (December 1). More than 33 million people live with the HIV/AIDS virus, and at least 2 million have died in the past year. Bloggers around the world play an important part in keeping awareness about HIV/Aids alive.

Blogging Positively Around the World

Global Voices bloggers have created a map of HIV positive bloggers who bravely defy stigma and taboo to communicate their situation to the rest of the world. It's best viewed in a large format.

It's a work in progress. If you have suggestions for links to add, please email Global Public Health Editor, Juhie Bhatia.
