HIV: ‘Let’s Sort This Together’ Campaign

Last year, the PaSH Partnership (BHA for EqualityGeorge House Trust, and LGBT Foundation) launched the ‘HIV: Let’s sort this together’ campaign focusing on working towards Greater Manchester’s ambition of ending all new cases of HIV within a generation.

The campaign continues this month, from Saturday 13th February 2021, with the release of some informative videos that have been filmed in Greater Manchester, in line with COVID-19 restrictions.

The ‘Test, Manage, Prevent’ videos include an overview film (which talks about all aspects of HIV awareness) along with five further videos which go into more details on different topics.

To support this campaign and the launch of the information videos, you can:

  • Share the campaign and videos on your social media channels and internal communications using the hashtag #SortHIV, and link to the campaign website
  • Use promotional materials such as print-ready posters and flyers, waiting room screens and digital assets (including email footers, website banners and desktop wallpaper).
  • Share articles about the campaign.
