World AIDS Day
WORLD AIDS DAY (WAD)
Click WORLD AIDS DAY INFORMATION PACK with ideas on how you can raise awareness this coming World AIDS Day.
World AIDS Day is on 1 December each year.
It’s an opportunity globally 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. There are 101,600 people living with HIV in the UK. Living with HIV can bring with it significant discrimination and stigma. This impacts on poverty, mental health and wellbeing and can lead to people living with HIV feeling isolated.
