Aspiring London-based fashion designer Jacob Alexander has launched a great new AIDS awareness app, dubbed the Positive Project, that is designed to help educate people about HIV as well as remove unnecessary stigma surrounding the disease.

Perhaps the most striking feature of this particular AIDS awareness app is its selfie-mapping feature. This particular feature is designed to make it possible for people to take selfies of themselves wear red Positive Project t-shirts and then upload them to the app-based map.

There are a lot of ways to promote AIDS awareness, but the use of a smartphone app and the encouragement of people to take part in AIDS education is sure to have a big impact.
