World AIDS Day

25 Nov 2013

From 25 November, we'll be remembering those who have been diagnosed with HIV and raising funds for this cause.


World AIDS Day is celebrated on 1 December every year. Not only does it give us the opportunity to remember those who have been diagnosed with HIV, but it also gives people the opportunity to raise money for this cause. It is vital that charities and working groups receive sufficient funding to ensure that advances are made to find a cure for HIV; to keep raising awareness about the transmission and to fund testing and treatment.

The University will be supporting World AIDS Day by having collection boxes and red ribbons* for sale at a number of FoodOnCampus outlets and building receptions from 25 November onwards - we aim to beat last year’s total of £238.49.

Staff and students who are affected or impacted by HIV have many support resources available at the University:

  • HIV Policy
  • Disability Support Office
  • Counselling Service

So show your support by wearing a red ribbon or donating to one of the many collection boxes.
