The famous charity was originally called the Terry Higgins Trust after one of the first people in the UK known to have died from the AIDS virus, which was only identified the previous year. The lovely people at Terrence Higgins Trust, Gray’s Inn Road, London let me take a photograph of my HIV virus against their well known sign.

The Trust aims to end the transmission of HIV in the UK; to support and empower people living with HIV; to eradicate stigma and discrimination around HIV; and to promote good sexual health. Terrence Higgins Trust is generally considered the UK’s leading HIV and AIDS charity, and the largest in Europe. It is also the lead organisation for Public Health England’s HIV prevention partnership HIV Prevention England.
