World AIDS Day , UK Quilts Project and HIV Awareness Staff Training Course

The UK Quilts Project – Sahir House Celebrates 30 years of World AIDS Day
The UK AIDS Memorial Quilt is a precious artefact commemorating lives lost to the AIDS epidemic during the 1980s and 90s. It is a public naming of loved ones lost, and a memorial for the many who died and went unnamed too. The UK Quilt is part of an international movement that sought to raise awareness of the impact of the AIDS epidemic and ensure that these lives would never be forgotten. For the first time since 1992, a selection of the quilts are on public display in venues across Liverpool for this year’s 30th World AIDS Day.
