The moment your daughter tells you that she is HIV positive

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 12-03-2014 15:00 | Category: Fundraising, Health

Sidaction 2014

- Dad is me.
- How are you honey?
- I am HIV positive.

This is the message that no parent wants to hear. It is the basis of the new campaign of Sidaction. Because Parents can’t always be there for their kids.

Sidaction is a major French public event that started in 1994 for raising awareness and collecting charitable funds for AIDS.
In contrast to 1994, the organization can bring a positive message. As the times have changed. Because medical science is a step further as it was then.
Parents are the target group this year.

“Cette fois, on a tous le pouvoir d’agir. Donnons
“This time, we all have the power to act. Give.”

AIDS Foundation introduces #dutchkiss

Worldwide, only one in ten gay men access to information about HIV, HIV testing and treatment. Their health is threatened by anti-gay laws and stigmatisation while this group has an increased risk.
Therefore, the Dutch Aids Foundation introduces the #dutchkiss in the run-up to Valentine’s Day. The international symbol for tolerance, love and the right to free choice of partners.

Aids Foundation: “This Valentine, let’s fight intolerance with love! If you too believe love is a fundamental right for everyone. And every person may choose who they love.”

Daleks, and 9 other things condoms can't protect you from

This cute little cartoon for the Centre for HIV & Sexual Health in Sheffield, England, doesn’t need much explanation.

3 Decades of Aids Awareness Campaigns #WorldAIDSDay

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 1-12-2013 21:30 | Category: Design, Gender issues, Health, Social aid, Developing World

I was wondering if there is an evolution in style and message in AIDS campaigning. So I started a Pinterest board with work containing print, outdoor and ambient campaigns. From all over the world.
The question is too complicated to answer. Because the differences between the continents are too big.

In general there are two goals: awareness and fundraising. And the work I was looking for, visually attractive, is mostly awareness.
Within that area all styles are used. Brutal copy, bananas, love games, portraits, typography. Above all there are two things which are used most: the condom and the red ribbon.

However there is a noticeable development. In the early days most campaigns warn us about the dangers of sex and syringes. And you can’t get AIDS from a swimming pool. It’s the typical awareness in it’s early stages.
The target group is mostly gay or addicted.
That evolved into a more general approach. Campaigns targets all sexual active groups. And prevention became the message.
In the last few years the social approach is rising. The human factor. About the fact the people with Aids or HIV around us needs help, love and understanding.

The Pinterest board is getting big but we aren’t even halfway. There is so much explore. It’s like an uncontrollable virus.
See it here and tell us which evolution you see.

An Aids campaign without the word and the ribbon #WorldAIDSDay

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 1-12-2013 16:15 | Category: Health

ASA Onlus: Condom saves live

An AIDS campaign like this wouldn’t have been made 20 years ago. No horrific images. No shocking copy. Even the word AIDS is missing. And the Red Ribbon too.
A lot has changed in a few decades Aids awareness. The text ‘Condom saves live’ can’t even disturb a Catholic. (I have doubts about the correct translation)
Striking for a campaign from Italy.

The ads are from the Italian ASA (Associazione Solidarietà AIDS).

Jugend gegen Aids Destroy Aids

Jugend gegen Aids Destroy Aids

The German Jugend gegen Aids are doing something striking in the battle against Aids. Like every year in the run-up to December 1, World Aids Day.
This year they use a hammer, grinder and welder to destroy a huge metal HIV sign – from 25 November to 1 December 2013.

It’s set up in the middle of Berlin for everyone to see through a live stream. Your share on Twitter or Facebook becomes your hammer or your welder, which are then used to take out a piece of the sign – so you can do your part to destroy HIV.

See and Destroy live here.

AIDES: Pinocchio gets a Woody for HIV prevention

AIDES: Pinocchio gets a Woody for HIV prevention

After years of getting attention with playfully explicit sexuality, the AIDES campaign has taken a different turn with this new PSA from TBWA France:

“Woody” (English slang for an erection) represents one of the more than half-million European walking around — and clubbing, and having sex — without realizing that they are HIV positive.

Can fundraising marketers recreate the #icebucketchallenge?

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
