Next year marks 40 years since the first case of HIV/AIDS in the UK and the death of Terry Higgins, whose loved ones founded the UK's first HIV organisation in his name, Terrence Higgins Trust.
This World AIDS Day, join us in remembrance for those we have lost, to support people living with HIV today, and to help bring an end to new cases of HIV.
