December 1st marks World AIDS Day.

Black people from African communities in the UK form one of the biggest groups for new infections of HIV. It is common that most people with this STI don’t realise they have it, but getting tested sooner rather than later can get you on the right medications, and protect yourself and your loved ones.

Terrence Higgins Trust is a nationwide charity that has several campaigns and groups aimed at African people, at Men who have sex with Men, sex workers, and for those living with HIV who are over 50. They also have a section on rights including Immigration rights. http://www.tht.org.uk

Naz Project is a London Based charity that provides sexual health support, groups and advice to LGBT people from Middle east, South America, Asia and Africa. http://www.naz.org.uk

PACE is London’s leading charity promoting the mental health and emotional well-being of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. If you have worries about HIV or are living with it, they are very good listeners. http://www.pacehealth.org.uk
