London AIDS Memorial
Our vision is to honour and commemorate the memory of those we have lost and the profound impact of HIV & AIDS. As part of this, we will be establishing a permanent London AIDS Memorial, located on Tottenham Court Road, close to the former Middlesex Hospital (the first AIDS ward), James Pringle House (the VD (STD) clinic that saw some of the first patients in the UK) and the Bloomsbury Clinic (the busiest HIV clinic in the UK).
Bournemouth Tiles in Pier Approach
In this memorial, you will find beautifully coloured tiles, each one uniquely designed by local students, covering an underpass at Pier Approach, Bournemouth.
The project was created by Dorset Aids Memorial Schools Educational Trust.
