CHIVA Youth Committee (CYC) update

The CYC has had a busy start to the year. The group had a residential meet-up in February where they wrote letters to their local MPs inviting them to a parliamentary event launching the new education toolkit that they developed with support from a facilitator and trainer.

The launch event took place on the 23 March and was a big success, with the Shadow Minister for Education pledging support for the toolkit which schools can now use to run educational HIV sessions. The event also launched the newly updated HIV in Schools guidance, which helps schools support any pupils living with HIV.
