“Training sessions taking place in March 2019 will update people on the significant developments in HIV treatment and testing, as well as exploring influencing factors surrounding transmission and general wellbeing.”

Amanda Scott, HIV project worker, Waverley Care, said: “Waverley Care is Scotland’s HIV and Hepatitis C charity. We are celebrating 30 years of delivering services to communities across Scotland. In that time, we have developed skills, knowledge and expertise which we will be sharing with professionals working in Argyll and Bute in the upcoming HIV training days.

“The training sessions will focus on new advances, such as Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and Undetectable =Untransmittable (U=U), as well as the importance of testing.”
