Thursday 1 December is World AIDS Day – a day for people across the world to unite in support of the fight against HIV; a day to reflect on how far we’ve come, and how far we’ve still got to go.
Terrence Higgins Trust’s theme for World AIDS Day is It’s Not Over (#ItsNotOver).
We’ve come a long way since the AIDS crisis first emerged, when so many lost their lives. Thankfully medical advances now mean HIV doesn’t have to stand in the way of living a long and healthy life.
But it’s not over. More people than ever are living with HIV in the UK. Services are being cut, stigma and myths about HIV are still deeply entrenched and we’re now seeing the first generation growing old with HIV. We can’t stop now.
On World AIDS Day 2016 we arere still fighting, still caring and still wearing our red ribbon with pride. We won’t forget, we won’t give up. It’s not over – but with your help, it could be.
This remarkable day always sees an outpouring of activity from Terrence Higgins Trust supporters across the country, from local events, collections and cake sales to people sharing red ribbon selfies on social media.
The HIV epidemic may not be over yet – but with your help, it could be.
Here’s how to get involved:
