One of the hardest things one can experience is losing a close friend or

relative to HIV/AIDS. The possibility of losing people that are important

in your life even gets worse when reported cases of new infections and

deaths are still on the rise.

Today an estimated 105,200 people are living with HIV in the UK. Yet our

recent research found 63% of the public do not remember seeing or

hearing about HIV in the past six months.

Only a third said they have sympathy for people living with HIV

regardless of how they acquired it. Our survey also found 1 in 5 think

people think you can acquire HIV through kissing. Only 16% knew if

someone is on effective treatment, they can’t pass HIV on and can

expect to live a long and healthy life.

World AIDS Day is the perfect time for us to improve these stats and

raise much-needed awareness about HIV.

In a bid to end the HIV/AIDS pandemic, It is imperative that people

have access to education, come forward to be tested, know their status

and to take the antiretroviral drugs if they are tested positive which is

the prime reason for participating in this year's World Aids Day Activities
