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

Family Conference 2020

For the last two year we have run a family conference for parent/carers of a child or young person who is growing up living with HIV, and young adults who have grown up living with HIV and their families. This is a safe space where participants can:

  • attend sessions exploring family communication and HIV, 
  • hear from the CHIVA Youth Committee and other young people about their experiences growing up with HIV
  • hear what young people living with HIV need from their family members
  • hear from other parents and carers perspectives, plus attend specialist workshops exploring topics such as positive parenting techniques, understanding the impact of bereavement, and self care.

We are delighted to be providing another family conference on Saturday 17th October 2020 at Friends House London. 

This event is exclusively for families who are living with, or affected by HIV. All travel expenses will be reimbursed, please contact us to arrange this. Please note, there will also be a play facility available for younger children.  CHIVA are running this event in partnership with METRO Charity.
