Every year on the 1 December people across the globe mark World AIDS Day: the international day to remember those who have died because of AIDS, to prevent new cases of HIV and to stand in solidarity with people living with the virus.
Here in Scotland we want to pull together and make the most of the opportunity World AIDS Day gives us to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS. For World AIDS Day 2017 we’re using a common theme for all activity – asking everyone: What Will You Do?
Across this site you’ll find information about how World AIDS Day is being marked across Scotland, and what you can do to help. Feel free to use the resources and information you’ll find – all we ask is that you tell us what you’re up to by using the hashtags #WhatWillYouDo or #AIDSdayScot, or by dropping us an email.
This website is administered by HIV Scotland, and the theme and resources here are those developed by the Scottish World AIDS Day Action Group – a coalition of charities, campaigners, health boards and government representatives from Scotland who want to make World AIDS Day as effective as possible. Get in touch if you’d like to learn more about the group, or to join us.
