World AIDS Day

Friday, December 1, 2023

At The Project, we are dedicated to providing exceptional HIV Care and Prevention services for Central Iowa. Join us on December 1st as the world unites to commemorate World AIDS Day, a powerful reminder of our collective mission to end HIV-related stigma. It’s a day when we honor those we have lost and recommit ourselves to the ongoing fight against HIV. In 2023, we mark the 35th anniversary of this important day with the inspiring theme of “World AIDS Day 35: Remember and Commit”. Together, let’s work towards a future where HIV is no longer a public health threat.

A legacy

World AIDS Day was first observed in 1988. Each year, organizations and individuals across the world bring attention to the HIV epidemic, endeavor to increase HIV awareness and knowledge, speak out against HIV stigma, and call for an increased response to move toward ending the HIV epidemic.

First founded as The AIDS Project of Central Iowa in 1987 by a coalition of dedicated volunteers to fight the AIDS Epidemic. The Project remains a key part of HIV prevention, care and education today in Central Iowa as it has been since it first opened its doors in 1991.


The success and sustainability of our programs and services are in large part due to the support of our donors. Because of donors like you, we are able to provide the following to clients in need:

  • gas & grocery cards
  • transportation assistance
  • pharmacy vouchers
  • utility assistance

We want to thank you for choosing The Project of Primary Health Care (PHC) for your charitable contribution. You are making a difference in the lives of those who are living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
