When HIV is mentioned in conversation or the media, what image is conjured? Is it someone dying in a hospital bed? Is it large-scale protest marches? Is this even still a threatening virus in Canada? This 2-hour workshop is designed to challenge assumptions and misinformation about HIV and teach participants what HIV is, how it affects the body, what current treatment options are available, how it differs from AIDS and incredible advancements in prevention. Participants will increase their knowledge of the virus and gain a better understanding of how to support people living with HIV.
