Statement from Borough President Diaz
RE: World AIDS Day

"Today, December 1, we recognize World AIDS Day.  I want to take this opportunity to remind Bronxites, and in fact all New Yorkers, that knowing your status is incredibly important, and is the best way to combat HIV/AIDS.  When you visit your doctor or healthcare provider, take a moment and get tested.  Everyone should take the time to know their status,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

Borough President Diaz’s office is co-hosting an event for World AIDS Day on Friday, December 12. The flyer for that event can be found at

In 2009, Borough President Diaz recorded public service announcements, in both English and Spanish, urging people to know their status and get tested for HIV/AIDS. They can both be watched at
