World AIDS day (MyCouncillor)

Friday 1st December is World AIDS Day 2017.

After 30 years of fighting AIDS, it's time to end isolation, stigma and HIV transmission once and for all!

But the fight is not just about the virus. For the 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. Luckily, through education, we can help to combat some of the myths that lead to these stigmas.

You can find out more by visiting the National Aids Trust website. Here's a link to find out some of the FAQs and the truths behind the myths.
