Every year, World AIDS Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in May. On this day, it is customary to remember people who died from AIDS.

For the first time, the World Remembrance Day of AIDS Victims (World Remembrance Day of AIDS Victims) was celebrated in the American San Francisco in 1983. A few years later, a symbol of the movement against this disease appeared. They became a red ribbon attached to clothes, as well as multi-colored canvases - quilts, sewn from scraps of fabric in memory of many people who have passed away. These attributes were invented in 1991 by artist Frank Moore. And now, on World AIDS Day, the activists of this action and just caring people attach red ribbons to their clothes.In Kazakhstan, the Day of Remembrance of those who died from AIDS is held annually, and in the last two years - in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. At present, when mass events for the population are prohibited, a large role is assigned to the organization of online events and outreach in electronic media and social networks.In order to preserve the health of patients in all regional centers for the prevention and control of AIDS, the distribution of antiretroviral drugs is organized with a reserve for a long time.
