Discreet Lives

HIV Prevention, testing and linkage to care for men who have sex with men

Time: 7.30pm - 8.30pm

Online Webinar

Men who have sex with men, but who do not identify as gay or bisexual are a priority group in the NSW Health HIV response. People in this group may or may not engage with traditional STI and HIV testing services, and may not even see themselves as being at risk of acquiring HIV.

General practice has a key role to play in preventing, testing and linking to care. This webinar will help equip GPs with the skills to identify patients within their practice who are at risk of HIV, and discuss HIV risk, prevention and treatment options.

This webinar will also share tools and resources that will help in the delivery of primary HIV care.
