World AIDS Day 2012

As part of the NBA Cares Season of Giving, the NBA family will continue the fight against HIV/AIDS in support of World AIDS Day on December 1. Through a variety of collaborative partnerships, including the Kaiser Family Foundation's Greater Than AIDS campaign, (RED) and GBCHealth, the league and its teams will generate awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS education and research.

In recognition of World AIDS Day, NBA and NBA D-League players competing on December 1 will wear special red-and-white adidas shooting shirts along with red headbands and wristbands, and coaches will wear red ribbons.

As part of the NBA’s longstanding commitment to supporting social causes related to health and wellness, the league and its players have supported HIV/AIDS research and education in a variety of ways including public service announcements, leadership with GBCHealth, HIV/AIDS testing and grassroots activities, education workshops and charitable donations.
