Events & Workshops
The Forums are designed to provide patients with the latest information about medical developments, the latest research and to provide up to date information about psycho-social issues affecting people living with HIV.
The forums take place regularly throughout the year and start with a number of presentations followed by an Expert Panel answering questions from patients. They are co-produced by the Bloomsbury Network and the organisations represented at the forums, e.g. BMA (British Medical Association), BHIVA (British HIV Association) and NAT (National AIDS Trust).
The latest news about new treatments and research from the worldwide conferences. Speakers from BHIVA (British HIV Association) and the Bloomsbury Clinic.
Employment law, criminalisation, your rights & The Equality Act, the advantages of disclosure. Speakers included Yusef Azad the Policy Director from NAT
What impact do recreational drugs have on people living with HIV? Where can we turn for help? Speakers from Antidote and other professionals.

“I’ve found all the forums extremely interesting, helpful and informative. The range of speakers has been very impressive and represent important organisations – which we, in turn, can influence… It is good to know we can influence national policies and the voice of the patient is being heard”.
