HIV and AIDS awareness literature, England, 1990-1995
This is a collection of leaflets and fundraising material designed both to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS and encourage donations to help fund the work of the British charity, The Terrence Higgins Trust. The Terrence Higgins Trust was set up in 1982 in memory of Terrence Higgins, the first person to die from AIDS in the United Kingdom. This diverse collection includes information about HIV and AIDS for people in prison, those using drugs, and churchgoers who may be concerned about the potential dangers faced by a congregation that shares communion wine from the same chalice.
