World AIDS Day is held on the 1st 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.

An estimated 101,200 people are living with HIV in the UK. Of those, 69% are men and 31% were women. Just under half of those living with HIV are gay or bisexual men. One in seven gay or bisexual men in London are living with HIV, compared to one in 25 in the rest of the UK and less than one in 500 for the general population.

As an inclusive employer, this webinar will enable you to support those with HIV in your workplace.

The webinar is delivered by Becky Brooks, UK Membership Director, and has been developed with the support of Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett of enei.
