World AIDS Day Webinar 2: Exploring Glasgow’s approach to tackling the ongoing HIV outbreak

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

This is the second webinar, hosted by Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) and Waverley Care, which seeks to highlight and share local responses to Glasgow’s current HIV outbreak.

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 local speakers who will share knowledge on how they are working on the frontline to tackle the outbreak and help people most affected by it.

The speakers include:

– Lynsey Boyd, Sexual Health/HIV Outreach Nurse, Sandyford/Hunter Street Homeless Health Service
– Rebecca Blair, Advanced Clinical Pharmacist PHOENIx Team, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
– Collett O’Connor, Project Co-ordinator for the HIV Street Support Team, Waverley Care
– TBC, Treatment Outreach Nurse – Glasgow Enhanced Care HIV Outreach (GECHO)

This event will be chaired by Fiona Gilbertson, Founder and Director of Recovering Justice.

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