Since 1988, World AIDS Day has been held annually on 1 December
Every year, this day is a chance for people all around the world to unite in the fight against HIV.
It's all about showing support for the millions of people worldwide living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have passed away from AIDS-related illnesses.
Common things that people do on World AIDS Day include wearing an HIV awareness red ribbon, donating to various AIDS-related organisations, starting conversations to spread awareness, and more.
Many Malaysians tend to underestimate HIV and think that it's no big deal. Here's why we need to take it seriously:
According to the Global AIDS Monitoring 2020 report by the Ministry of Health, as of 2019, there are an estimated of 87,000 people living with HIV in Malaysia.
And what's really worrying is that more than 80% of new HIV infections in 2019 were due to sexual transmission. By just wearing a condom, these infections could have easily been prevented.
That's why Watsons is collaborating with Durex to show their support for World AIDS Day this year.
From 10 to 12 December 2020, you can get up to 20% off on Durex products at Watsons!
Having unprotected sex is one of the main ways HIV/AIDS is spread. That's why it's so important to wrap it up before getting it on, gais!
Used primarily as a contraceptive, Durex condoms are up to 98% effective, and the only effective protection against sexually transmitted infections and diseases.
So, don't shy shy and stock up on Durex products before the year ends, k? ;)
