Family Conference 2022

CHIVA runs an annual family conference for parents/carers of a child or young person who is growing up living with HIV, and young adults who have grown up living with HIV. 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 of 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.

The most recent family conference took place on Saturday 21st May 2022.

These events are exclusively provided for families who are living with, or affected by HIV.
