Register an event

Events are the centrepiece of World AIDS Day. Find out what events you can register, and why, when and how to do it.

What World AIDS Day events to register 

You can register any event for World AIDS Day that is open to the public. Events should focus on raising awareness and understanding of HIV, remembering lost loved ones and/or fundraising. 

Some people run small private events – such as hosting dinner parties or wrapping trees in red fabric. You don’t need to register these. But we are very happy if you want to raise awareness through a small event. 

Why register 

When you register your event with us, it’s visible to anyone who comes to this website. This increases the likelihood that people will attend your event or host their own World AIDS Day activity. 

When to register 

Please register your World AIDS Day event by 15 November each year.
