Jameela Jamil said: “An unplanned pregnancy is not the only scary thing that can come out of unprotected sex. Having had a friend who was diagnosed with HIV I know just how life-shattering it is, which is why I’m supporting HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust this World AIDS Day on December 1st.
“Get involved so this brilliant charity can continue to support the growing numbers of people affected by HIV every year in the UK. It’s really easy to take part. All you have to do is log on to Terrence Higgins Trust’s website, www.tht.org.uk to get your free box of little red ribbons. Sell them to friends, family and colleagues and wear with pride this December to raise awareness of HIV and generate vital funds for THT.
“HIV isn’t going to go away just because we don’t talk about it. There’s still no vaccine and no cure which is why Terrence Higgins Trust needs you on board this World AIDS Day.”
Terrence Higgins Trust’s Director of Communications, Genevieve Edwards, said: “We’re thrilled to have Jameela’s support and such stunning photos to raise vital awareness of World AIDS Day. It’s a time we’re reminded just how important it is to look after our sexual health every day of the year. Get your red ribbons on for Terrence Higgins Trust this December and help us make a real difference to the thousands of people living with HIV in the UK.
“And if you’re having sleepless nights about having put yourself at risk of HIV or other sexually transmitted infections or need any help and support related to HIV and sexual health give THT Direct a call on 0845 12 21 200.”
