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

Social Care

This area is aimed at people who work with children, young people or families in schools, youth clubs, social care services, residential homes and any other non specialist HIV settings. It provides information which may be useful if you come to work with children, young people and their families who are living with HIV in these wider settings.  

You can find out if there are any specialist services in your area working directly with children, young people and families living with HIV in our service providers area here.

We have created an area for you to broaden your understanding of HIV and what it means for families who live with it.

If you work in a school or college, you can find specific information in HIV in Schools in our resource library and Studying with HIV for how to support your pupils.

The below video explores one-to-one work with children and adolescents and is aimed at professionals providing support and care for children and young people living with HIV.
