What is IDPWD for?
✨Celebration – to recognize and value the diversity of our global community, and to cherish the role we all play, regardless of our abilities;
✨ Learning – to understand and learn from the experiences of people with living with a disability;
✨ It is a day for optimism – to look towards the future and the creation of a world where a person is not characterised by their disabilities, but by their abilities;
✨ Action – where all people, organisations, agencies and charities not only show their support for International Day of People with Disabilities, but take on a commitment to create a world characterised by equal human rights.

What is World AIDS Day?

World AIDS Day takes place on 1 December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.

Why is World AIDS Day Important?
Globally, there are an estimated 38 million people who have the virus. Despite the virus only being identified in 1984, more than 35 million people have died of HIV or AIDS related illnesses, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.

Today, scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment, there are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition.

World AIDS Day is important because it reminds the public and government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.

Let's learn about the wonderful world of dental dams! Healthline describes them as: "A dental dam is a thin, flexible piece of latex that protects against direct mouth-to-genital or mouth-to-anus contact during oral s*x. This reduces your risk for s*xually transmitted infections (STIs) while still allowing for cl****al or a**l stimulation."

Dental dams are perfect for oral s*x! You still get all the stimulation without any of the worry! Scroll through to learn the 101's of dental dams.
