Reflections on World AIDS Day

Red Pump joins individuals and organizations around the world to recognize World AIDS Day. While we use this day to remember how HIV/AIDS has impacted the global community, it is also a day that gives us hope. Due to new treatments and increased prevention efforts, we know that we are getting closer to a world without AIDS.
Although we #RocktheRedPump every day, today we do it for the 16 million women worldwide who are living with HIV. As you commemorate World AIDS Day, please take the time to share a statistic, promote an organization doing great work, or show some love to a woman you know has been impacted by this disease. We promise to do the same.
 

Introducing Red Pump Stories

The Red Pump Project is excited to launch Red Pump Stories, an content series documenting the narratives, struggles, and successes of women living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Read the first profile on Kecia Holden on our blog, written by Veronica Appleton.
