HIV Health Support
If you live in London, you can also access a new service for people living with HIV.
Sometimes making decisions about your health and life with HIV can be confusing, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. THT’s HIV Health Support is a new service which can help you to make sense of the bigger picture, and make changes to help you lead a healthier life.
You can ask the HHSS anything about living with HIV – from questions about the immune system, what your test results mean and starting treatment, to safer sex and telling other people about your status. One of THT’s Health Trainers will pick up your question and reply to you within two working days. If you'd like them to call you, please just let them know, and they will.
