Act Aware is about taking action

  • Find out the facts and bust the myths about HIV
  • Take our quiz to find out if you've put yourself at risk of HIV and have an HIV test if recommended
  • Talk to your partner, friends or children about HIV and point them in the direction of this website so they can learn the facts
  • If you learn something new about HIV, share it with others who might be less informed
  • Always use a condom when having sex with a new partner
  • Find out if your local school has a comprehensive sex and relationships education (SRE) programme, and teaches young people about HIV and explain why it's important.
  • Check whether your employer has robust policies to ensure people living with HIV are treated fairly at work
  • Challenge people who hold misconceptions about HIV by telling them the facts and encouraging respect and understanding
  • Organise a fundraising event to raise awareness of HIV in the UK
  • Wear a red ribbon, the universal symbol of awareness and support for those living with HIV. You can find out about the history of the red ribbon here
