Dayton Lights Up Red for World AIDS Day

The Dayton community has come together this 2017 World AIDS Day to honor those who have lost their lives to AIDS, renew their commitment to assist those who are living with or at risk for HIV, and celebrate the caregivers, families, friends, and organizations that support them.

On Friday morning, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, issued a proclamation thanking Equitas Health for our leadership in HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention in the Dayton community. In honor of World AIDS Days, it names December 1 as Equitas Health Day. Click here to read the proclamation.
