Terrence Higgins Trust (THT), the HIV and sexual health charity, will be running an open day at its Brighton centre at 61 Ship Street on Thursday, March 21 from noon.
Public and professionals will be able to get to know more about the charity’s work and have their say. There will be free and confidential rapid HIV tests for anyone visiting the centre and the day will be rounded off with a series of talks, a Q&A session and light refreshments from 6pm till 8pm.
In 2011, there were an estimated 6,378 people living with HIV in the South East Coast region. THT in Brighton works closely with groups who are disproportionately affected by HIV, such as gay men and the African community, but the centre welcomes anyone with a personal or professional interest in HIV and sexual health to attend the open day.
Ross Boseley, Health Promotion Coordinator for Terrence Higgins Trust in Brighton, said:
“This open day is a great chance for members of the public, local leaders, community groups, business owners or health and social care professionals to learn more about and have their say in the way we’re addressing the spread of HIV in Brighton. This year is particularly special for the charity as we celebrate our 30thanniversary and three decades of inspiring better sexual health. We welcome anyone with an interest in HIV and sexual health to learn about the support we offer today and shape our services for the years to come!”
