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

Support & further info


Reaching out and connecting with others has never been more important. If you would like to connect with CHIVA staff and other young people from CHIVA, you can join our virtual group meet-up sessions where we chat about life, HIV and COVID-19. We aim to make the sessions fun, supportive and inspiring.

These sessions so far have covered a range of different topics, including: 

  • COVID-19 vaccine awareness
  • Debates about HIV and young people 
  • #YoungandBlack - revisiting CHIVA's Calls to Action & sharing experiences 
  • Back to School / college/ work. How does it feel? + vF2B camp reflections  
  • All things medical - guest expert to discuss COVID-19 & other concerns 
  • Mental health and Wellbeing 
  • specific sessions for University students

Find out about upcoming sessions and please contact Abi if you would like to join: or 07807 705062. Young people new to the groups are always welcome and you don't have to join every time. 

We are also available to talk to on the phone so do get in touch.
