World Aids Day
Yesterday was #worldaidsday. I have been wearing my ribbon since last year and I have had many people ask me what it represents.
It's always been an honour for me to be able to explain what it symbolises and what more is needed to be done to remove stigma.
Here are some facts done by PHE in 2016 on #hiv
42% of all people diagnosed with HIV were diagnosed late.
Late diagnosis is most common in certain groups, heterosexuals in particular
76% of people newly diagnosed have started antiviral treatment within 90 days.
So if you haven't go get yourself educated and tested. Alongside a ribbon so you can help inform others!
