Women & HIV
This half-day course will help you understand and respond to the particular needs of women who are most at risk of HIV infection. In this course we will explore issues around biological risks to HIV, sexual assault, violence, HIV disclosure, breastfeeding, childbirth and more. Together we develop creative solutions to support women through complex issues such as condom negotiation and infant feeding. We will look at HIV prevelance among women and consider ways to support high-risk groups. 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.
