Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs have taken time to recognise World Aids Day and to highlight the dangers of unsafe sexual contact when it comes to this deadly disease.

World AIDS day has taken place on December 1 every year since 1988 and is dedicated to raising awareness of the pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. It is also a time to mourn those who have died of the disease.

The disease has reportedly wiped out close to 40 million people globally despite recent improvements in antiretroviral treatments in many regions of the world.

Nonetheless, the Glamour Boys have issued a statement to their legion of fans across South Africa promoting the merits of practising safe sex.

The club's official website said: "Spread love, not HIV. Protect one another. We remember those that are infected and have been affected by HIV. World Aids Day 2016."

Chiefs' next assignment on the football pitch is an Absa Premiership clash with Chippa United on Saturday. The action gets underway from 18:00 at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
