Women & HIV
This half-day course will help you understand and respond to the particular needs of women who are living with HIV and those most at risk of HIV infection. We will explore issues around biological risks to HIV, sexual assault, violence, HIV disclosure, and we will pay particular attention to breastfeeding and childbirth. Together we will develop creative solutions to support women through complex issues such as condom negotiation. In particular, we will consider how to support women who are formula feeding due to their HIV status.
Up-to-date information about testing, treatment and prevention technologies will also be provided.
This course will improve your skills and knowledge of how to support women who are living with or at risk of HIV, especially high-risk groups.
This course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.
