Act Aware

Get involved with the National AIDS Trust's World AIDS Day campaign.

This year we are asking people to show solidarity with the 100,000 people living with HIV in the UK - and the 34 million world-wide - by wearing the universal symbol of HIV awareness, the red ribbon. We want you to get creative - put it on clothes, on food, on buildings. There is nowhere the red ribbon cannot go! So no matter what you do this World AIDS Day, make sure you #PutARibbonOnIt

And to find out the facts, visit HIVaware — a fun, interactive website providing the information everyone should know about HIV.

Act Aware all year round by supporting our campaigns

We are committed to ensuring that the laws and policies affecting people living with HIV are fair, and we work to raise awareness of HIV and the importance of HIV education in the UK today.
