Today is World AIDS Day, and events are taking place around the world aimed at reducing transmission and increasing awareness of HIV and AIDS. To mark the occasion, Better2Know, the world’s leading private provider of HIV and STI testing services, is donating £1000 to the Terrence Higgins Trust – a charity dedicated to ending the transmission of HIV in the UK and around the world.
“We are so grateful for the money Better2Know has raised for Terrence Higgins in the past”, said Eleanor Covell, Fund-Raising Officer at the Terrence Higgins Trust. This is the 5th year in succession that Better2Know has teamed up with the trust for the World AIDS Day campaign, and Ms Covell stated her appreciation to Better2Know for being ‘on board’ once again in 2017.
Better2Know helps thousands of people around the world find peace of mind regarding their sexual health, with stress-free screenings for a wide range of STIs, including HIV. With over 1000 clinics worldwide, the company provides discreet and efficient testing in the UK and well as countries such as Ireland, Spain, South Africa, Australia, India, Kenya, and beyond.
Discussing the donation, Better2Know CEO, Mike Asher, said: “The Terrence Higgins Trust does outstanding work helping people with HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Aiming to end the transmission of HIV, and supporting those with the infection, must be two of the most worthwhile ambitions in the global fight against this infection. Better2Know is delighted to support the Terrence Higgins Trust for the 5th year in a row, working alongside them to improve the lives of people across the UK and beyond”.
Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day. As well as raising awareness, the event provides support for those who are living with HIV or AIDS, commemorates those who have been lost to the disease, and unites people in the fight against HIV and AIDS. This year’s campaign hopes to go one step further, and ‘end isolation, stigma, and transmission’.
