It aims to give people their right and helping to create a global movement to finished forms of discrimination. In 2024, it is the 10th anniversary of Zero Discrimination Day. So, the theme for this year is “To Protect Everyone’s Health, Protect Everyone’s Rights.” This theme speaks about the building association connect with the human rights and public health in achieving the goal to stamp out AIDS by 2030.

The butterfly is the symbol of Zero Discrimination Day. It represents the transformation and freedom from discrimination. Discriminate refers to trusting people differently from another. It is so shameful that people get discriminate in every aspect and every step-in life. Like Age, Colour, Sex, Religion etc. people are still being fired, harassed, targeted, and discriminated at work because they are LGBTQ. Age discrimination include treating somebody not very great fully because if age. People who have disability they also face discrimination.

People treating an employee less favourably because someone having a of disability. Colour discrimination is also very big problematic issue that people face. it includes treating anyone unfavourably because of colour of their skin. There is certain taboo & stigma and discrimination. A person who has HIV already know that, HIV is taboo and there is stigma. But it is very much difficult for that person to experience it, but the people around him make it difficult for them. Some countries restrict entry based on HIV status. So, it is major stress source for them.

If we take positive steps to prevent discrimination then it can help a lot of people. So, they also can live their lives peacefully. If there is small organisation with limited resources, there is a lot of things you can do to prevent discrimination & make your more inclusive.

Developing specific policies for your organisation to prevent bullying, discrimination & sexual abuse, policy how to you are going to handle these things if ever happen in the organisation. An equality diversity policy makes sure that all your policies should match up life if you have a dress code, make sure it is flexible for every group of people, whether it includes religion, gender, colour. If you have a social media policy draw a line that people must not discriminate anyone in between the organisation.

If discrimination complaint decrease that does not mean it is not happening. If you help those people and stand with them against the discrimination, the people who are afraid to speak out can also gain strength to speak out against discrimination.

Education plays a very big role in this scenario because education is important. first of all people need to know that differences still exist and it is not something that can be taken for granted, we need to stand up with the people who need help.
