“The League Managers Association (LMA) is proud of its association with a number of important charity and community partners, one of which is HIVsport. As part of this relationship, we are pleased to be able to help raise awareness of HIV and Aids and to support the excellent work HIVSport continues to do. Following on from the success last year, we have again sent out a ‘Badge of Hope’ to each of the Barclays Premier League and Coca-Cola Football League managers for them to wear during their matches the weekend before and after WAD.”

...about HIV/AIDS and sexual health

“… we have seen a massive increase in HIV infections and STDs across all the population – straight and gay. Labour has failed to tackle the crisis in sexual health which is why a Conservative government would make it a priority. We would protect spending on public health and do more to give people the information they need to live healthy lives.”
Conservative Party spokesperson during run up to the general election - April 22, 2010

 

“The fact is that young people are going to have sex whether you like it or not.
Emma Thompson

“The fight against HIV/AIDS requires leadership from all parts of government - and it needs to go right to the top. AIDS is far more than a health crisis. It is a threat to development itself.”
Kofi Annan

“I tell you, it's funny because the only time I think about HIV is when I have to take my medicine twice a day.
Magic Johnson

“AIDS is no longer a death sentence for those who can get the medicines. Now it's up to the politicians to create the "comprehensive strategies" to better treat the disease.”
Bill Clinton

“HIV does not make people dangerous to know, so you can shake their hands and give them a hug.
Princess Diana

“People wait in line to see me saying there's plenty of living to be done even if you have an HIV diagnosis.”
Greg Louganis 

“We need men and women to sit down and talk to each other about sex honestly and openly. That would help us fight Aids so immediately. But our lack of communication is hugely problematic.”
Emma Thompson

"Sport has the power to change the world, it has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.”
Nelson Mandela 

“Sport can play a role in improving the lives of individuals, not only indi-viduals, I might add, but whole communities. I am convinced that the time is right to build on that understanding, to encourage governments, development agencies and communities to think how sport can be in- cluded more systematically in the plans to help children, particularly those living in the midst of poverty, disease and conflict.”
Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the United Nations
