World Aids Day

Today being internationl AIDS day, I've been thinking...

So many people die with this everyday yet we are so ignorant of it. In South Africa thousands day each day due to AIDS related diseases. And the stigma sometimes lasts generations. So my question is this...does having and intenational AIDS day really help or does it impound the problem? What are the reasons for such a day?

Is there a point to it? What role does the media play in such a day? And whether they a fulfilling there mandate to do so?
I know its just more questions but i'm a bit two minded about the whole thing. In a sense it may be good in terms of building awareness but on the other hand it also could impound the fact that many live with the stigma of AIDS.
Just some thoughts
