World Aids Day 2009

By respecting and protecting ourselves and others we can stop the spread of HIV and end HIV prejudice.

5 things you can do to Respect & Pro

  • Find out the facts about HIV and talk to your friends, family and colleagues about HIV – make sure they know the reality, not the myths.

  • Know your HIV status: get tested if you have put yourself at risk.

  • Talk to all new sexual partners about using condoms. Using a condom during sex (especially vaginal or anal sex) is the best way to protect yourself and your partner from HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

  • If someone tells you they are HIV positive, treat them with respect and don’t tell others without their agreement.

  • Wear a red ribbon as a symbol of your support for everyone affected by HIV, and to raise awareness.
