Awareness campaign #RespectMyHIV


It is time to change the paradigm of fighting something.

Therefore, the key message of the new campaign is:

“Respect diversity: HIV status, sex work, sex, gender, sexuality, migration, mobility, choice, love, freedom, diversity, dignity, ethnicity, special needs, well-being, sexual and mental health, intimacy, lust, rights, faith and humanity”.

The main event of the campaign is a demonstration and march through the streets of London. On Saturday 30 October, at 2:30pm UK time, participants will gather in Parliament Square - from there we will walk to Trafalgar Square, where the march concludes with a rally with speeches from various communities, politicians and celebrities.

Show your solidarity - come to the demonstration - or join us online!

Race to support children living with HIV


The race to support children living with HIV will kick off on October 27th at 17:45 GMT at the opening ceremony of the 18th European AIDS Conference held at ExCeL London. The race will end 36 days later on the shores of Lake Issyk-Kul in Kyrgyzstan on World AIDS Day – December 1st 2021.

The aim of the race is to raise the level of public awareness and understanding around the problems faced by children and adolescents living with HIV in the countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Funds raised will also to provide support for a camp for Russian-speaking children living with HIV.

The distance from London to Lake Issyk-Kul is 6864 kilometres (4265 miles). Participants are not being asked to donate their own money to the race, but to “earn” it. For each kilometre that a participant runs, ride a wheelchair, or walks 1 euro will be added to the race’s piggy bank.

1km = 1€. If the final distance is reached by December 1st, 2021, the total donation fund will be rounded up to a total of 10,000 euros.

Anyone can take part in the race, regardless of what country they live in, you can run, ride a wheelchair, or walk the distance anywhere. But each participant will be able to enter their result only once. Once you have walked or ran your kilometre(s) you should pass the baton to another participant via social media or by e-mail – keeping the race going.

The more kilometres a participant walks or runs and the more people they encourage to participate in the race, the more money will be in the piggy bank. The more money we raise helps us increase awareness of the lives and problems of children living with HIV in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
