Dalls Buyers Club tells the story of Ron Woodroof, who is stunned to learn that he has AIDS. Though told that he has just 30 days left to live, Woodroof refuses to give in to despair. He seeks out alternative therapies and smuggles unapproved drugs into the U.S. from wherever he can find them. Woodroof joins forces with a fellow AIDS patient and begins selling the treatments to the growing number of people who can’t wait for the medical establishment to save them. Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both won Academy Awards for their performances in this film. Check out the trailer here.
World AIDS Day is held on the 1st December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day, held for the first time in 1988. Visit the organization’s website for more information.
