WORLD AIDS DAY

ON 1ST DECEMBER EVERY YEAR PEOPLE WORLDWIDE UNITE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HIV

The importance of World AIDS Day

Despite modern medical advances, many people still don’t know how to protect themselves and others from HIV, and stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV is very common. 

World AIDS Day reminds the public and government that HIV has not gone away—there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education. 

HIV is one of the most destructive pandemics in history


This year’s events

World Aids Day 2016 is on the 1st December 2016. People across the country hold events to raise awareness about HIV - why not take a look at some of the examples from last year?

LAST YEAR'S EVENTS

Think Positive: Rethink HIV


For World AIDS Day 2015, NAT challenged people to rethink out-dated stereotypes, challenge myths and be positive about HIV, with our ‘Think Positive: Rethink HIV' campaign. We rallied a movement of people to tell the truth about HIV. From awareness-raising bake sales to sharing HIV facts on social media, there were many ways people got involved.

Kissing booth in Soho Square

In 2015 we opened a ‘Kissing Booth’ in Soho Square to spread the message ‘Kissing Doesn't Spread HIV. Ignorance Does’. The booth was visited by everyone from hunks to drag queens.
