The event is itended to serve as a reminder that HIV and AIDS and their complications are alive, thriving, and affecting the lives of millions all around the globe. We wouldn’t be very good proponents of the spa lifestyle if we didn’t remind our readers to take active steps to remain healthy, happy, and disease-free! We also want to encourage you to take a few moments during this happy season to consider those affected by the epidemic – particularly women and children, who are disproportionately affected in most developing nations. Visit the World AIDS Campaign’s website for information on how you can get involved in the movement to stop AIDS. We wish you a happy and healthy December!
