The Terrence Higgins Trust co-founders Rupert Whitaker and Martyn Butler have been awarded OBEs ahead of its 40th anniversary.

Since the early 80s, the life-saving charity has been a leader in services dedicated to HIV and sexual health. Created in the name of Whitaker’s fallen partner, who was one of the first patients to die from an AIDS-related illness, the organisation has introduced a bevvy of educational resources, free HIV testing events and essential campaigns for people across the UK.

Due to their tireless work and integral role in the UK’s HIV/AIDS response, the Queen’s birthday honours recognised the two impactful figures on 1 June.
