In this talk we take a look at some of the current issues around HIV including PrEP, ageing with HIV, stigma, U=U, criminalisation and looking at the progress on treatments and potential vaccines and cures. All from the point of view of an involved patient.
Running parallel with a career in EFL/ESOL teaching in the UK and faraway places, Cathy has lived with HIV for over 20 years and campaigned actively for HIV treatment for all worldwide. This is as well as being involved in other human rights organisations since coming to Edinburgh in 2000.
Kickoff at 7pm sharp.
No tickets required ... just turn up and join the fun!
