Plus One Launch

A new research publication from Sigma Research & the NAHIP programme:

The National African HIV Prevention Programme (NAHIP) is launching findings from a new study on the experiences of African people in HIV sero-discordant relationships in England. Plus One was a large-scale interview-based study that explored: experiences of diagnosis and disclosure; relationship management or breakdown; sex and risk; as well as external influences on the relationship and sources of support.

The research has been produced by Sigma Research at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) as part of the Evaluation & Development work stream of the programme.

This launch event is by registration only.

On: Tuesday 15TH November, 2011

At: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Keppel Street, London

Time: 4.00 – 6.30pm

We are delighted that the opening address will be given by Peter Piot, Director of the LSHTM and former Executive Director of UNAIDS.
