Story

Hey all ! Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page :-) 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

For this year's World AIDS Day 2019, I'll be running/struggling through/ignoring my knees on the 10K RedRun in London on 30th November, in an effort to raise money for Aidsmap (NAM). 

What is NAM?

NAM is a vital educational charity for those living with HIV and is a major figure in tackling misinformation and stigma surrounding HIV. 

A recent YouGov survey (July 2019, of 2,075 people) revealed

high levels of HIV related stigma

– almost half of people would feel uncomfortable kissing someone living with HIV, and 64% would feel uncomfortable having sex with someone living with HIV who is on effective treatment. 


This is despite confirmation from several major scientific studies that people living with HIV on effective treatment can’t pass on the virus. 

What is U=U ? 


NAM has been at the forefront of championing the Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) message, assuring people, both HIV positive and those who do not have the virus, that there is

no risk of sexual transmission when virally suppressed on treatment

. Data released earlier this year revealed that less than 1 in 5 people in the UK were aware of this fact


How can you help?

  • Donating £5 ensures we reach even more people with reliable and accurate resources about HIV treatment and prevention

  •  £10 helps us produce news bulletins for healthcare staff all across the world about developments in the fast-moving world of HIV care
  •  £25 means we can empower more activists in the campaign for PrEP with campaigning and advocacy materials

My take-home message: 

No-one deserves to be shamed or vilified for their health matters; You can make a difference by helping to debunk these myths surrounding HIV, and in doing so, help to end the stigma that affects so many for good. 

Thank you x
