November 30, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
40 years on since the first HIV diagnosis, look how far we have come.
From the hopeless life-threatening disease of the early 80s to successful treatment and a manageable long-term health condition.
Thanks to advancements in HIV treatment, we can now keep HIV suppressed by taking daily medication, which allows us to live healthy lives without the worry of passing HIV on to others.
It is often forgotten that activism, direct action, and lobbying by our community of people living with HIV and their allies that forced governments and pharmaceutical companies into action. It was also our community who fought for us to be treated with dignity and in doing so changed forever the relationship between Dr and patients, amongst other radical changes in healthcare provision.
The Bloomsbury Patient Network and the Peer Support Team would like to invite you to this event, where some of those activists and community leaders will recall their contribution to the fight against HIV and the impact that has had on HIV care over the last 40 years.
The Bloomsbury Network and Mortimer Market Peer Support Team jointly welcome:
Please join us as we hear from and ask questions and discuss with these inspirational people and how we can learn and develop our own empowerment of living with HIV
