World AIDS Day

Terrence Higgins Trust’s theme for World AIDS Day 2017 is See Red (#SeeRed).

See Red for World AIDS Day 1 December 2017 

Let’s make the world 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.
