Zero Discrimination Day

Inequality continues to widen for more than 70 percent of the world’s population, and with the pandemic, the burden on the most vulnerable is increasing.

On Zero Discrimination Day, UNAIDS wants to reach out to more people to raise awareness about the inequalities that impede people’s development and prevent them from living productive lives.

This day wants to draw attention to “the urgent need to take action to end the inequalities surrounding income, sex, age, health status, occupation, disability, sexual orientation, drug use, gender identity, race, class, ethnicity and religion that continue to persist around the world.”
