Red Ribbon Club

red ribbon


The Red Ribbon was created in 1991 by the Visual AIDS Artists Caucus, New York City, America. The colour red was then chosen as its symbolizes the colour of blood and the idea of passion—not only anger, but love.   A red ribbon was first worn publicly by Jeremy Irons at the 1991 Tony Awards. Later on, the red ribbon became the international symbol of HIV/AIDS awareness.

Our AVMC Red Ribbon Club (RRC) is a voluntary organization of medical students. Its main aim is to sensitize students towards the risk perception and prevention of HIV infections among youth as well as promoting voluntary non-remunerated blood donation. In addition, our RRC motivate the youth and build their capacity as peer educators and help medical students develop their skills in leadership, critical thinking and team building.
