Module 1 and 2 are for everyone, and you are then able to choose Module 3a if you want general HIV Stigma Awareness, or Module 3b if you are particularly interested in HIV & Ageing (which covers stigma as well). Please let Alice Booth know (details below) which one of these you would like to attend when you sign up. (It is possible to attend both, but there will be some crossover in the content.)

If you would like to attend but can’t make these dates, please let Alice know, and advise of a more suitable time for you so THT can then try to accommodate you with the next round of online training.

Alice Booth, HIV Training Coordinator, said: ‘Having trialled this in May, I can report that it works remarkably well and I have received very good feedback from the attendees. So please do give it a go if HIV is something you would like to learn more about. The training is suitable for anyone who may be working with people living with HIV, supporting colleagues who may be living with HIV, or just if you want to update your knowledge in general.’
