Health First, the NHS specialist in health promotion agency, is launching a new training programme focused on improving the lives of those living with HIV.
The new programme, aimed at health professionals and volunteers, will equip participants with the skills required to identify and overcome obstacles to positive prevention. They will learn about the evidence and good practice to support the approach.
The course will initially be available in the London boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham. However in commissioning Tulliver Training and Consultancy, Health First aims to introduce the programme to other PCTs across the country.
Graham Rushbrook, director of Health First, said: 'This new approach will help promote sexual health among people living with HIV, an audience that is often overlooked and unrecognised as sexual people.'
