Understanding HIV course launched by THT

People purchasing condoms online may be interested in a new City & Guilds course announced by the Terence Higgins Trust (THT).

The HIV and sexual health charity will be launching the Level 2 Award in Understanding HIV and Aids in London on February 23rd.

Joanna Hurren, head of function at City & Guilds, described the course as "invaluable" for individuals interested in working in the HIV sector.

"It is also the ideal career development support for someone already working in a role where they need to be aware of issues relating to HIV and AIDS," she added.

Areas of study will include the transmission and prevention of HIV, stigma and discrimination and how to manage HIV and Aids.

It is a distant taught learning course that requires people to attend two face-to-face study days in the capital.

Elsewhere, the THT is planning to run two workshops for gay and bisexual men who feel they are losing control over aspects of their life.
