HISTORYThe Red Ribbon is the international symbol of HIV and AIDS awareness.
The Ribbon Project was formed in 1991 by Visual AIDS, a New York-based charity group of art professionals that aim to recognise and honour friends and colleagues who have died or are dying of AIDS.
The colour red was chosen for its ‘Connection to Blood and the Idea of Passion – Not Only Anger, But Love, Like a Valentine,’ says Frank Moore of Visual AIDS
