I am proud to announce that I have been elected Community Representative for BHIVA – British HIV Association.
BHIVA is a body manly constituted by HIV consultants and is responsible of all the important decisions regarding the medical care of people living with HIV in the UK
For example BHIVA writes every year updated treatment guidelines. Recently they published a booklet in collaboration with the National Aids Trust on guidelines for the detention and deportation of HIV positive migrants. Those guidelines state that nobody should be taken into detention without their medication and if deported they should be given 6 months of medications and contact information about treatment centers in their country.
BHIVA is a very influential body and I am really grateful to all the members of the Community Advisory Board who showed their trust by voting for me. I will work very hard to represent the views of us who live with HIV, to do this I will need your support and input.
