Standing up to HIV
For World AIDS Day 2015 we have launched our 'Stand Up’ campaign.
46% of people living with HIV around the world (17.1 million) don’t know their status.1 Stigma is one of the main factors that stop people from testing.
Some people are so scared of HIV, what happens during a test, and what other people would think of them, that they are too afraid to test.
But why let fear get in the way of your health? By highlighting the myths and facts, we hope that we can empower people to stand up to their fears of HIV and get tested.
