Course Overview

People living with HIV often experience stigma and discrimination because of their diagnosis and thus are at risk of their quality of life being severely impacted. It is of utmost importance to treat people living with HIV as more than patients, but as people first and foremost.  

 

This webinar has been developed to provide health care professionals with the necessary skills and tools to treat people living with HIV with respect, dignity and compassion, and where quality of life is considered just as important as medical intervention.
