We know that Coronavirus COVID-19 is causing a lot of worries for people, we aim to provide information, guidance, support and reassurance during this challenging time. CHIVA have developed dedicated information for professionals, parents and young people on COVID-19 and HIV to provide updates on recommendations and evidence as received.


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


CHIVA works with clinics to engage children and young people in professional and peer based support through different projects and activities run throughout the year. Support provided outside clinics aims to enhance knowledge and understanding and provide emotional and social support, developing confidence, skills, social and improve emotional well-being. This helps young people develop resilience to manage the challenges of living with a life-long health condition.

CHIVA campaigns to address the ongoing stigma around HIV to raise awareness and improve wider understanding; ensuring the rights and needs of children and young people growing up with HIV are met.
