Target Audience: All staff and students

Positive Voices is a unique programme run by Terrence Higgins Trust which offers the opportunity to hear directly from people living with HIV. They will share stories of their daily lives, the good, the bad and the truth of living with HIV, whilst fighting against the stigma and discrimination by promoting HIV awareness and the sexual health message in a positive and informative way.

The University of Strathclyde, in collaboration with Terrence Higgins Trust, are hosting a Positive Voices talk on Tuesday 26th March 2019 from 12pm until 2pm in the Insight Institute.
Hearing from Positive Voices speakers can help people to see beyond their preconceptions about people living with HIV. Rachel Kerr and Michael Nugent, Positive Voices Co-Ordinators, will speak between 12pm-1pm with the opportunity for questions followed by tea, coffee and cake. Staff from the Disability and Wellbeing Service will be available with a range of health promotion materials. All staff and students are welcome to attend.

The University of Strathclyde, working alongside Terrence Higgins Trust, are offering full sexual health testing on campus. We know that attitudes, along with a lack of information, prevent people from accessing HIV testing, sexual health services and support.
Free, fast and confidential HIV and STI testing will take place in GH435 on Level 4, Graham Hills Building, 50 George Street. Drop-In sessions will run between 9:30am and 12:30pm on Tuesday 26th March.

Friendly staff from Terrence Higgins Trust will be there to greet you in the waiting area (GH435), to answer any questions that you might have and support you through your testing appointment. During the consultation; students and staff will have the opportunity to undertake testing best suited to their needs.

These are two separate events with no requirement to attend both, however, we would kindly ask you to register your interest for the Positive Voices presentation at the Insight Institute for catering purposes.
