What’s behind the change on the homepage?
As of midnight on December 1, in honor of World AIDS Day, MSN trims its page in red. This is to bring attention to the disease that afflicts an estimated 33.2 million people around the globe, according to figures reported in early November by the World Health Organisation and the United Nations AIDS agency. Red has become the recognised colour for the fight against AIDS, much like pink denotes breast cancer awareness.
Why this year?
We always look for ways to invigorate the homepage experience. Having the ability to adjust the colour is one simple way to bring attention to a special day.
Does everyone see this presentation?
MSN has dozens of start pages in various languages around the world; today most are trimmed in red.
How do I learn more about AIDS and HIV?
You can search MSN Encarta for a comprehensive insight into AIDS, HIV and what is being done globally to treat patients and reduce the spread of the virus and disease.
