World AIDS day is on 1 December each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness.
In 2018, around 4,500 people in the UK were newly diagnosed with HIV. it was estimated that there were 103 800 people living with HIV in the UK.
The National AIDS Trust works to inform and educate people about HIV and AIDS. They support people living with HIV and run awareness campaigns around testing and prevention. Three-quarters of people living with HIV report feeling lonely and isolated. The National AIDS Trust works to change that and to challenge the stigma around HIV.
We are supporting them again this year by selling red ribbons. You can buy yours from the C Store in the Andrews Building. We suggest a donation of £2 for a ribbon but please only give what you can afford to give.
You can find more statistics on HIV in the UK on the National AIDS Tust website
Advice on sexual health and HIV testing in and around Southampton is also available from the NHS website Let's Talk About It
