World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December every year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. Government and health officials observe the day, often with speeches or forums on the AIDS topics. Since 1995, the President of the United States has made an official proclamation on World AIDS Day. Governments of other nations have followed suit and issued similar announcements.


AIDS has killed more than 25 million people between 1981 and 2007, and an estimated 33.2 million people worldwide live with HIV as of 2007, making it one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history. Despite recent, improved access to antiretroviral treatment and care in many regions of the world, the AIDS epidemic claimed an estimated 2 million lives in 2007, of which about 270,000 were children.

Fashion of Singapore and France on Joint Stamp Issue


Beautifully illustrated in this joint stamp issue is the sophisticated fashion in France and cultural costumes of Singapore which was released on November. Singapore’s vibrant and multicultural heritage has allowed many traditional costumes to be still worn and commonly seen throughout the island, especially during the festive seasons.

Singapore is fast becoming one of Asia’s top fashion capitals. The Asia Fashion Exchange, which has been held for four years now, brings together professional from the world for roundtable discussions. It organizes competitions to showcase new generations of Asian designers. It was also in Singapore, where, for the second time at the end of 2012, a week was dedicated to haute couture. For this event, certain young designers from Parisian fashion shows were invited to present their collections with the support of the Federation francaise de la Couture. This crafted a significant milestone for Asia and the occasion for international exchanges and inspiration for the creations of tomorrow.
