We are Positive is our new film raising awareness of HIV, challenging preconceptions and tackling stigma.

Did you know that:

  • 1 in 10 people in the UK still think that HIV can be passed on by kissing (it cannot)
  • 1 in 5 said knowing a family member was HIV positive would damage their relationship with them
  • 1 in 10 people in the UK would be uncomfortable working alongside a colleague who was HIV positive*

Our video and photos feature people responding to two statements:

HIV is…

HIV is not…

You can help tackle HIV and spread the word by:

  • Sharing the video with friends, family and colleagues
  • Uploading your own video or photo and sharing it through Twitter, Instagram and Facebook with the hashtag #wearepositive
  • Supporting the work of Positively UK by donating here or texting ‘PosU01 £5’ to 70070.

Together #wearepositive and we can fight HIV stigma
