World AIDS Day 2017: See Red

See Red for World AIDS Day 2017

World AIDS Day 2017 See Red logo

As the countdown begins to Friday 1 December, we’re delighted to announce Terrence Higgins Trust’s theme for World AIDS Day 2017: See Red.

Incredible medical advances been made in the fight against HIV, since our namesake Terry Higgins lost his life 35 years ago. 

We’re closer than ever to beating HIV. But we won’t get there until we stamp out stigma. We need to See Red.

On Friday 1 December, people all over the world will wear a red ribbon with pride, without fear, shame or stigma. On World AIDS Day, the colour red represents solidarity, love, activism and remembrance. The more we see red, the sooner we will end the HIV epidemic.

With your help we can raise vital funds to tackle stigma and support people living with HIV.

Join our movement, stay passionate and keep fighting until HIV stigma is a thing of the past.

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.

Over the next few weeks we’ll keep our Facebook and Twitter feeds updated with all our exciting plans. Here’s how to get involved:

Our CEO Ian Green, has also written a Huffington Post blog today on why World AIDS Day is more important than ever.

The theme was created with lots of input and advice from staff, volunteers, people living with HIV and our fundraisers. We’d like to thank all those who have helped shape our plans for World AIDS Day 2017.
