About Zero Discrimination Day

The UN first celebrated Zero Discrimination Day on 1 March 2014.

It was observed after UNAIDS launched its Zero Discrimination Campaign on World AIDS Day in December 2013. The UNAIDS is a UN program on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
