Happy World AIDS Day 2012.
We hope that you are raising awareness of HIV/ AIDS in whatever way suits you best. Better2Know will be donating to the Terrence Higgins Trust for every HIV test booked through us during the two weeks from 26 November to 9 December 2012.
For the next ten days we will be blogging about ten interesting HIV facts:
Fact 1: AIDS first became widespread and known in the 1980s. The Soviet Union (as it then was) immediately tried to use it in its propaganda campaign in the Cold War. The Soviets started a programme of mass misinformation and informed their citizens that the USA had intentionally created the HIV virus to harm their enemies. Of course this is not the truth behind HIV/ AIDS, but to this day many people in the former Soviet states believe that the USA is the origin of HIV.
Better2Know can test for HIV at any of its private STD Testing clinics across the UK. Tests start from just ten days after any potential exposure.
