World Aids Day 2012

Bangladeshis took to the streets on Saturday (December 1) to mark World Aids Day and raise awareness of the condition. Residents marched through Dhaka carrying signs and placards, in some places with musical accompaniment. UNAIDS says more than 7000 people are living with HIV in Bangladesh which saw its first case in 1989. On Friday (November 30) Sydney Opera House was lit up red and spectators were treated to a fireworks display for the big day.
