If you want to know everything about the disease and how to stay safe, on the new Staying Alive site you can find a massive knowledge database to answer all your questions, blog about issues concerning you and check out our celeb videoblogs.

You can also be part of the campaign " MTV and Nike will be auctioning limited edition trainers signed or designed by artists such as Snoop Dogg, Craig David, Shaggy and Nicole Scherzinger at the recent Europe Music Awards.
