It started December first of 1988, and it was a way to raise awareness about an epidemic sweeping the world.

Today (11-29) is ''World Aids Day," and it's observed across the Globe.

Students at UT Permian Basin didn't wait for December first to hold presentations about H-I-V and AIDS.

Students learned about the 33 million people living with H-I-V.

Featured speakers shared their knowledge on the subject.

A balloon launch was held to remind everyone about the number of people living with the virus, and representatives from the Texas Department of Health were on hand offering free H-I-V tests.
