It has been more than three decades since the first patient in Britain was diagnosed with HIV.

The fear and suspicion of the condition in the early years has since largely diminished,

Actionplus, under the leadership of Rev Fred Osei Annin are a charity actively working to support people living with HIV/AID, to aid them to playing a central role in improving their own lives leading to permanent and lasting solutions.

In Ghana and in the UK, they lead in HIV education including support and empowerment programmes. Actionplus partners with several organisations to change the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS, operating in the heart of communities and leading outreaches.
