Tuesday, December 1 is World AIDS Day, an opportunity to raise awareness about HIV and move closer to the goal of an AIDS-free generation. Health students will pass out red ribbon stickers outside the front entrance before school starts on Tuesday.


Balboa is fortunate to have an AIDS Memorial Quilt Panel on loan from The NAMES Project on display in our library through Friday, December 4. Weighing 54 tons, with more than 48,000 panels and dedicated to more than 94,000 individuals, the Quilt has been used to fight prejudice, raise awareness and funding in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Please stop by the library and view it. 


Approximately 36.9 million people worldwide are living with HIV/AIDS. While new HIV infections have fallen 35% since 2000, 1 in 4 of all new HIV infections is among youth (ages 13 to 24).
