Enhancing the health and social wellbeing of children and young people living with HIV

CHIVA works to ensure young people living with HIV have the treatment and care, knowledge, understanding, skills and wider support needed to live well and achieve their greatest potential.

Life Growing Up is a short film created with young people who have grown up living with HIV, sharing their true stories and thoughts.
