We are supporting World Aids Day on the 1st December. Miss Miller will be selling red ribbons to be bought at 20p for students and 50p for staff from the Humanities workroom on both breaks.
LET’S END IT
End HIV transmission
You’ve helped us fight HIV. Now, let’s end it. This World AIDS Day join the fight to end the negative impact of HIV.
This year in the UK there have been the first significant reductions in HIV diagnoses for gay men in London, thanks to frequent testing, rapid treatment and PrEP. Let’s grow this success so that it includes everybody at risk, across the UK.
But our fight is not just about the virus. For the more than 100,000 people living with HIV in the UK, ignorance and discrimination can still limit opportunities, preventing them from living full and happy lives. HIV means you are more likely to live in poverty, and more likely to have poor mental health.
This is an exciting turning point. But we need a new burst of energy to end stigma, end HIV transmission and end the isolation experienced by people living with HIV, for good.
CAMPAIGN TO END IT
World AIDS Day is the perfect time to ask your MP to show leadership on HIV issues. Is your MP thinking of their constituents living with and affected by HIV? Will they or do they support the Let’s End It campaign? Learn more about the Let’s End It campaign.
EDUCATE TO END IT
Mark World AIDS Day in your school by using our free teaching resources. Your students will learn about what life is like with HIV, how to protect themselves and about HIV history with our assembly PowerPoint and illustrated timeline, which you can download here.
FUNDRAISE TO END IT
