The ICC's Think Wise partnership with UNAIDS and UNICEF has been raising awareness and reducing stigma around HIV and AIDS since 2003.

Among the global champions of this partnership are Kumar Sangakkara, Graeme Smith and Stafanie Taylor.

By providing exposure at major events and involving elite players, Think Wise campaigns have been credited with contributing to reduced levels of stigma and greater levels of awareness in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.

During the ICC World Twenty20 Bangladesh 2014, players from Bangladesh and the West Indies will undertake specific awareness-raising activities and a public service announcement featuring Bangladesh All-Rounder Shakib Al Hasan will be screened at tournament matches.

Players from the teams taking part in the men's and women's finals will wear red ribbon stickers as a sign of solidarity for people living with HIV and AIDS.

The umpires and referees will also sport the Think Wise logo on their shirt sleeves.
