World AIDS Day 2016

 “Despite modern medical advances, many people still don’t know how to protect themselves and others from HIV, and stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV is very common.

World AIDS Day reminds the public and government that HIV has not gone away—there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.”

Today we raised £50 for the National AIDS Trust (http://www.nat.org.uk/) by selling red ribbons in the Portland building. On Monday we will have a welfare stall with Medsoc for their welfare week and will be selling the ribbons then, too!
