Terrence Higgins Trust launching a new six week course for gay men who are living with HIV and Hepatitis C.

Launches Group For Gay Men With Hepatitis C And HIV, UK
On October 27, Terrence Higgins Trust is launching a new six week course for gay men who are living with HIV and Hepatitis C. The group will meet each week from 6.30pm - 9.00pm in central London.
The course looks at living with both HIV and Hepatitis C, but the primary focus will be on Hepatitis. Issues covered include dealing with the impact of diagnosis, the medical aspects of Hepatitis C, treatment, sex and disclosure and coping emotionally.
The course will be facilitated by someone with personal experience of HIV and Hepatitis C. A doctor and a clinical nurse from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital will lead the sessions on treatment and the medical side of things.
Gordon Mundie, Groupwork Service Manager at Terrence Higgins Trust, said “Living with HIV and Hepatitis C can be tough emotionally as well as physically. This course will allow men to share their experiences and receive practical support in a relaxed, informal environment. If you’re interested, please get in touch to find out more.”
