For World AIDS Day on the first of December, TikTok is joining forces with the Elton John AIDS Foundation to increase awareness about HIV/AIDS.
The campaign launches on November 25, with TikTok users being offered access to a quiz on HIV/AIDS education and awareness. Elton himself will also take part in a special livestream on the app beginning at 11 a.m. PT. David Furnish will appear, while Sam Fender, Sam Smith, and Rina Sawayama are to perform.
”HIV may seem a disease of the past, especially with COVID-19 in the headlines, but it still affects everyone,” Elton stated. ”We all need to care about HIV and end the discrimination around this disease. There’s a great line-up for our TikTok Live to break down the myths around HIV, talk about safe sex, and ensure that young people know how to protect themselves and others.”
