Talking About HIV:
The aim of this project is to educate the general public and increase awareness of HIV in Bristol and surrounding areas. The level of awareness of HIV has regressed in recent years and this means that people living with HIV continue to face stigma and discrimination which affects their wellbeing. Talking about HIV will address this issue by sharing the facts about HIV and dispelling myths.
The project will deliver a diverse program of HIV education initiatives: HIV awareness training; public campaigns; events and workshops; and strengthen community partnerships.
All of the activities will be co-delivered by a team of volunteers living with HIV who have been trained in public speaking and have up to date HIV knowledge and awareness.
Brigstowe’s vision is a world in which people living with HIV live long and healthy lives, free from poverty, stigma, prejudice and discrimination. Brigstowe’s aim is to enhance the quality of life for people living with HIV through a wide range of responsive services including advice, peer support and a specialist migrant service.
