World AIDS Day Webinar 1: Exploring international approaches to tackling localised HIV outbreaks

Join us this World AIDS Day for a series of two free webinars which explore international and Scottish approaches to addressing localised HIV outbreaks.

The first webinar, hosted by Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) and Waverley Care, seeks to highlight and share international perspectives on tackling local HIV outbreaks.

Since 2015, there has been an ongoing HIV outbreak amongst people who inject drugs in Glasgow. Although testing and treatment delivery redesign has made a significant impact on transmission, the outbreak remains ongoing with some spread beyond the original Glasgow city centre cluster.

As a result of this continued outbreak, both SDF and Waverley Care are welcoming a panel of international speakers who will share knowledge about how they addressed local outbreaks, and ideas for how we can tackle Glasgow’s outbreak together.

The speakers include:

– Marienalla Kloka, Advocacy Officer with PRAKSIS in Athens.
– Tony Duffin, CEO of the Ana Liffey Project in Dublin.
– Valentin Simionov, Programmes Coordinator, International Network of People who Use Drugs (INPUD)

The webinar will involve presentations and the opportunity for questions and discussion.
