World AIDS Day – a teaching resource

World AIDS Day – a teaching resource

World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.

The Centre for HIV and Sexual Health (part of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) has produced this free downloadable teaching resource for use in schools and youth work settings with support from Sheffield City Council.

Equipping You

We hope this resource will encourage you to consider holding a specific assembly about World AIDS Day in your work setting or deliver lessons or other activities to inform young people about how HIV and AIDS affect millions of people around the world and to raise awareness of HIV, HIV prevention and the impact of HIV related stigma and prejudice that often has its roots in misinformation.
