Monday, Dec. 1 was World AIDS Day, a day when the global community paused to pay tribute to the 39 million men and women who have lost their lives to AIDS-related illnesses. In its 26th year, World AIDS day was also an opportunity to asses the treatment provided to the 35 million people currently living with HIV, as well as what the future of the virus holds.

How has the movement to end HIV/AIDS evolved over the last three decades? Who is most at risk of contracting the virus today? What recent advances have we made in HIV prevention? Can you take a daily pill to prevent HIV infection? And will we ever see a world with zero AIDS related deaths and zero new HIV infections?

msnbc’s Richard Lui will answered your questions about #WAD2014 on Dec. 1. Joining him were msnbc.com's Emma Margolin and Bailey House, one of the nation’s oldest HIV/AIDS service organizations, which has provided housing and support for those living with HIV/AIDS in New York City, the epicenter of the U.S. outbreak, since 1983.
