Spring fundraising appeal

Help us improve education on HIV with your regular donation

Knowledge and awareness have come a long way since the early days of the HIV pandemic, which was powerfully portrayed in Russell T Davies’ "It’s a Sin" on Channel 4 recently.

HIV has changed - and we need your help to make sure people have up-to-date information about HIV.

Unlike in the 1980s, schools must now include sexual orientation, gender identity, and information about HIV within their Relationships and Sexual Health education. We need to make sure educators in schools and other settings have access to resources to help them implement this new guidance effectively. You can find our current resources, which are available free to all schools, here.

Please make a regular gift of £5 per month below to help us improve HIV education.

We’ve made a lot of progress towards ending new HIV transmissions. But far too many people don’t know enough accurate information about HIV. This will continue to fuel stigma and discrimination. It will stop us from reaching our goal to end new cases of HIV in England by 2030.

Your regular gift will help us share accurate, up to date HIV information.

We urgently need your support to make sure people have current HIV information, can make informed choices about their sexual health, and so we can end HIV stigma and discrimination. 

"Living with HIV myself, it really matters to me that HIV education is a priority. It’s easy to come across ‘fake news’ and misinformation about HIV. This is why HIV education in schools is important and the correct information must be available to young people to help them make safe and informed decisions around sexual health. There’s still no vaccine or cure for HIV. Education is the most effective way to prevent new cases of HIV."

– Christian Dolan

HIV education in schools is critical to make sure all young people understand HIV and the rights of people living with HIV. With the right resources, teachers can provide trusted and accurate information.

“My education didn’t teach me any more about HIV than I’d have learned from a sitcom. HIV was taught as an issue for people in poorer countries or that gay men faced in the ‘80s and ‘90s. I was unaware of the scale of the pandemic, the medical advancements in treatment meaning HIV is no longer a death sentence, and what life is like for people living with HIV now.”

– Abi Itkin

Where your money goes

National AIDS Trust is completely independent, so we can challenge injustice wherever we see it -always led by the issue and not where the money is. However, this also means that we rely on the generosity and dedication of our supporters.

All donated money goes towards continuing our vital work in championing the rights of people living with and affected by HIV ​and campaigning for change.

Our work is only possible because of the generosity of our supporters.
