In a video message, featured on the World Aids Day website, the Prime Minister said:
Wearing the red ribbon is about showing solidarity and about reflecting on the scale of the challenge we still face.
But more than just reflection, today has got to be about action. Individuals, charities, campaigners and governments, working together to address HIV and AIDS. This government is fully signed up to these efforts at home and abroad, because we’re meeting our international promises we are able to make a big difference overseas.
