The Landmark Aids Centre is a day centre in Tulse Hill, London which offers treatment and support for HIV/AIDS patients. It was officially opened on 25 July 1989 by Diana, Princess of Wales.[1][2] She gave director Jonathan Grimshaw — diagnosed HIV positive — a firm handshake before going inside the centre for a private tour.[1] At a time when police dealing with AIDS patients still wore rubber gloves, this was the first attempt to de-stigmatise the condition by a high-profile member of the Royal Family.[1]
