Another campaign has been launched which sees men strip down naked in order to tackle the stigma faced by people living with HIV.

Launched to coincide with World AIDS Day today, the ‘HIV Stripped Bare’ campaign from GMFA’s FS Magazine aims to destigmatise HIV in order to bring down new infection rates and help those living with HIV to get support where needed.

The campaign page reads: “When we become unable to talk about HIV, we are unable to have those important health related discussions that can prevent transmission.

“Just because someone is living with HIV, it doesn’t mean they are doomed, it doesn’t mean they are ‘unclean’, and it doesn’t mean they are predatory or dangerous.”
