Women’s Health for women living with HIV

I am very excited that The Women’s Room next week will provide a space for women with HIV to ask all their treatment and health related questions to Dr Verity Sullivan, an HIV physician, who is particularly passionate about the health of women living with HIV.

The group is open to all women living with HIV, we have a crèche, and can reimburse travel expenses to women on a low income. So if you have any questions about HIV, you never dared to ask before…. Come and join us!

How bright is the future for those living with HIV in the UK?

We are now in the fourth decade of the HIV epidemic: giant advancements in medical treatment mean that people living with the virus, like myself, can expect to live to old age if we have access to treatment, support and care, and we are treated with dignity and respect. I would have never imagined this to be possible when I was diagnosed in the late 90’s, a few days before my 30th birthday. As much as I rejoice that I will soon be turning 50, I still cannot say that the future is bright for myself and the other 107,000 people estimated to be living with HIV in the UK.
