The Red Ribbon is the international symbol of HIV and AIDS awareness. It stands for:
Care and Concern
- It is being worn by increasing numbers of people around the world to demonstrate their care and concern about HIV and AIDS - for those who are living with HIV, for those who are ill, for those who have died and for those who care for and support those directly affected.
- The Red Ribbon is intended to be a symbol of hope - that the search for a vaccine and cure to help the suffering is successful and the quality of life improves for those living with the virus.
- The Red Ribbon offers symbolic support for those living with HIV, for the continuing education of those not infected, for maximum efforts to find effective treatments, cures or vaccines, and for those who have lost friends, family members or loved ones to AIDS. But the Red Ribbons are not enough. The Red Ribbon is only a useful symbol in the long run when attached to words and deeds that actually make a difference. If you are offered a Red Ribbon, you are asked to take it and wear it as a tribute to the millions of people living with or affected by HIV and AIDS worldwide. Anyone can wear a Red Ribbon to support the cause.
