- Hi, this is the page for "HIV: What's the story?" - the British Red Cross campaign which lets young people know that HIV and AIDS is still a big problem, which can affect all of us, and shows you what you can do about it.
According to our survey, 1 in 7 14-25 year olds in the UK said they would NOT stay friends with someone with HIV. Help us fight this stigma by inviting your friends to join this group. To find out more about how you can help visit http://www.redcrosshiv.org
Watch the videos of Shabna, Marco and Kirsty, they all know each other and they're all worried about HIV in different ways. The story starts with Shabna: she's just had Marco's baby but he's had a one night stand with a girl everyone's saying has HIV. What should she do?
Tell us what you think. Do you have your own stories? Please join in the blog.
If you want to know how you can help, or see more videos, got to www.redcrosshiv.org.

Some of you have been asking whether the videos are acted, I posted an earlier comment to say that they are based on real experiences, but played by actors.
If you want to see some videos of "real" people living with HIV, and of "real" volunteers who are helping, go to : www.redcrosshiv.org.

Isn't that amazing, if most of us think we know all there is to know by now about HIV/Aids?
Can you beat the score of 62%?

There's a lot of stories that go around about HIV and AIDS, some of them are true, some of them aren't. Once you know the facts you start to realise that there are all sorts of people all over the world who are affected by HIV and many of them are just like you. It shouldn't be something that people are labelled with, it's an illness like any other and people who are living with HIV just want to get on with their lives. There's medication and support for young people affected by HIV but no matter where you are in the world there's still stigma and fear surrounding it. People are afraid to talk to you. People think you get these illnesses because you deserve them. How would you feel it it were you? How can we reduce this kind of discrimination? What do you think?
