The red ribbon is the universal symbol of awareness and support for people living with HIV. Wearing a ribbon is a great way to raise awareness of HIV, and this t-shirt means you never need to worry about sticking yourself with a pin. 

People living with HIV continue to experience stigma and discrimination, mainly due to the general population's continued lack of knowledge and understanding. We must continue to educate, push for change and fight misconceptions about HIV

About the red ribbon

The red ribbon has become one of the most recognisable symbols for HIV and AIDS. Created in 1991, when HIV was highly stigmatised, and the struggles of many communities of HIV were still being ignored and hidden, a group of artists came together in New York to create a visual symbol to express compassion for people living with HIV. 

Red was chosen to avoid colours associated with the gay community and to convey that HIV is relevant to everyone. Red is bold and is known for symbolising love, passion and the heart. 

The red ribbon remains a powerful symbol that helps to increase public awareness of HIV.
