The two officials were James Bunn and Thomas Netter. The idea for a day dedicated to the problem of AIDS and HIV was approved by then director of UNAIDS, Dr. Mann. The first ever World AIDS Day was celebrated on December 1, 1988. Up until 1996, the day was organized by the World Health Organization.The White House has also started displaying a large AIDS Ribbon on its building since 2007 every year on this day. The effort has garnered quite a lot of attention globally and helped raise awareness level among people.
